Abstract. For almost all values of $x\in\RR$, the classical theta sum $$S_N(x)=N^{-1/2}\sum_{n=1}^N \e^{2\pi i n^2 x}$$ exhibits an extremely irregular behaviour, as $N$ tends to infinity. This limit is investigated by exploiting a connection to the ergodic properties of flows on the unit tangent bundle of a surface of constant negative curvature.
