Abstract: In this article we will get the estimate of the expected distribution of critical values of Gaussian $ SU(2)$ random polynomials as the degree is large enough. The result about the expected density is a direct application of the Kac-Rice formula. The critical values will accumulate at infinity, then we will study the rate of this convergence and its rescaling limit as $ n\to \infty $.
