The “Brownian bees” model describes an ensemble of N independent branching Brownian particles. When a particle branches into two particles, the particle farthest from the origin is eliminated so as to keep the number of particles constant. In the limit of N → ∞, the spatial density of the particles is governed by the solution of a free boundary problem for a reaction-diffusion equation. At long times the particle density approaches a spherically symmetric steady state solution with a compact…

The limit point in the Jante's law process has a continuous distribution

We study a stochastic model of consensus formation, introduced in 2015 by Grinfeld, Volkov and Wade, who called it a multidimensional randomized Keynesian beauty contest . The model was generalized



Speed and fluctuations of N-particle branching Brownian motion with spatial selection

We consider branching Brownian motion on the real line with the following selection mechanism: every time the number of particles exceeds a (large) given number N, only the N right-most particles are

A Branching Random Walk Seen from the Tip

We show that all the time-dependent statistical properties of the rightmost points of a branching Brownian motion can be extracted from the traveling wave solutions of the Fisher-KPP equation. The

Statistics at the tip of a branching random walk and the delay of traveling waves

We study the limiting distribution of particles at the frontier of a branching random walk. The positions of these particles can be viewed as the lowest energies of a directed polymer in a random

Brunet-Derrida Behavior of Branching-Selection Particle Systems on the Line

We consider a class of branching-selection particle systems on $${\mathbb{R}}$$ similar to the one considered by E. Brunet and B. Derrida in their 1997 paper “Shift in the velocity of a front due to
