Central limit theorem for kernel estimator of invariant density in bifurcating Markov chains models

  title={Central limit theorem for kernel estimator of invariant density in bifurcating Markov chains models},
  author={S. Penda and Jean-François Delmas},
Bifurcating Markov chains (BMC) are Markov chains indexed by a full binary tree representing the evolution of a trait along a population where each individual has two children. Motivated by the functional estimation of the density of the invariant probability measure which appears as the asymptotic distribution of the trait, we prove the consistence and the Gaussian fluctuations for a kernel estimator of this density based on late generations. In this setting, it is interesting to note that the… Expand

Moderate deviation principles for kernel estimator of invariant density in bifurcating Markov chains models
Bitseki and Delmas (2021) have studied recently the central limit theorem for kernel estimator of invariant density in bifurcating Markov chains models. We complete their work by proving a moderateExpand


Local bandwidth selection for kernel density estimation in a bifurcating Markov chain model

Adaptive estimation for bifurcating Markov chains
In a first part, we prove Bernstein-type deviation inequalities for bifurcating Markov chains (BMC) under a geometric ergodicity assumption, completing former results of Guyon and Bitseki Penda,Expand
Limit theorems for bifurcating Markov chains. Application to the detection of cellular aging
We propose a general method to study dependent data in a binary tree, where an individual in one generation gives rise to two different offspring, one of type 0 and one of type 1, in the nextExpand
Statistical estimation in a randomly structured branching population
We consider a binary branching process structured by a stochastic trait that evolves according to a diffusion process that triggers the branching events, in the spirit of Kimmel's model of cellExpand

Detection of cellular aging in a Galton-Watson process
We consider the bifurcating Markov chain model introduced by Guyon to detect cellular aging from cell lineage. To take into account the possibility for a cell to die, we use an underlyingExpand
