Résumé :
Suppose that $X$ is a uniformly distributed random element of the orthogonal group $\mathrm{O}(n)$. The powers $X^k$ are in general not uniformly distributed, but their distribution has been described by E. M. Rains. If $v$ is a unit vector in $\mathbb{R}^n$, then $X^k v$ is not uniformly distributed on the unit sphere either. We summarise what is known about this problem, and consider generalisations to unitary matrices and to more general compact Lie groups.
