Kingman's coalescent, which has numerous applications in population genetics, is the δ0-coalescent for δ0 a unit mass at 0. The coalescent recently derived by Bolthausen and Sznit- man from Ruelle's probability cascades, in the context of the Sherrington- Kirkpatrick spin glass model in mathematical physics, is… Expand
Construction of markovian coalescents
Abstract Partition-valued and measure-valued coalescent Markov processes are constructed whose state describes the decomposition of a finite total mass m into a finite or countably infinite number ofExpand
BETA-COALESCENTS AND CONTINUOUS STABLE RANDOM TREES
TLDR
It is proved that Beta-coalescents can be embedded in continuous stable random trees based on a construction of the Donnelly-Kurtz lookdown process using continuous random trees, which is of independent interest. Expand
On Asymptotics of Exchangeable Coalescents with Multiple Collisions
We study the number of collisions, X n , of an exchangeable coalescent with multiple collisions (Λ-coalescent) which starts with n particles and is driven by rates determined by a finiteExpand

THE COLLISION SPECTRUM OF -COALESCENTS1
-coalescents model the evolution of a coalescing system in which any number of blocks randomly sampled from the whole may merge into a larger block. For the coalescent restricted to initially nExpand
Stochastic flows associated to coalescent processes. III. Limit theorems
We prove several limit theorems that relate coalescent processes to continuous-state branching processes. Some of these theorems are stated in terms of the so-called generalized Fleming-ViotExpand
Coalescent processes obtained from supercritical Galton-Watson processes
Consider a population model in which there are N individuals in each generation. One can obtain a coalescent tree by sampling n individuals from the current generation and following their ancestralExpand
Distinguished exchangeable coalescents and generalized Fleming-Viot processes with immigration
Coalescents with multiple collisions (also called Λ-coalescents or simple exchangeable coalescents) are used as models of genealogies. We study a new class of Markovian coalescent processes connectedExpand
CONVERGENCE TO THE COALESCENT WITH SIMULTANEOUS MULTIPLE MERGERS
The general coalescent process with simultaneous multiple mergers of ancestral lines was initially characterized by Mohle and Sagitov (2001) in terms of a sequence of measures defined on theExpand
On Asymptotics of the Beta Coalescents
We show that the total number of collisions in the exchangeable coalescent process driven by the beta (1, b) measure converges in distribution to a 1-stable law, as the initial number of particlesExpand

The multiplicative coalescent $X(t)$ is a $l^2$-valued Markov process representing coalescence of clusters of mass, where each pair of clusters merges at rate proportional to product of masses. FromExpand
