The second trace moment of a Sato-Tate group $G$ is the expected value of the square of the trace of a random element of $G$ (under its Haar measure).

When $G$ is the Sato-Tate group of an abelian variety, this is equal to the dimension of its geometric endomorphism algebra [arXiv:1910.00518, MR:4038255].
