Consider a sequence of finite graphs, of fixed valency, whose size goes to infinity. Assuming their girths go to infinity and that they are expanders, Etienne Le Masson and I proved some version of the "quantum ergodicity" phenomenon : for most of the eigenfunctions $psi_j$ of the laplacian, the probability measure $|psi_j(x)|^2$ on the set of vertices is close to the uniform measure.
