Several characteristic parameters of randomly grown quadtrees of any dimension are analyzed. Additive parameters have expectations whose generating functions are express-ible in terms of generalized hypergeometric functions. A complex asymptotic process based on singularity analysis and integral representations akin to Mellin transforms leads to explicit(More)
Curious parallels between the processes of species and language evolution have been observed by many researchers. Retracing the evolution of Indo-European (IE) languages remains one of the most intriguing intellectual challenges in historical linguistics. Most of the IE language studies use the traditional phylogenetic tree model to represent the evolution(More)
