Abstract: I will begin by reminding everyone what a Fra\iss\e class is, and I will introduce a certain family of ultrafilters related to such a class. After that, I will review what is (usually) intended when one says that a Fra\iss\e class has a 0,1-law for first-order sentences. Finally, I will propose a method of indexing asymptotic distributions on a Fra\iss\e class by elements of a certain compact space, and I will discuss some results that can be proved using this method.
