We consider the Λ-coalescent processes with a positive frequency of singleton clusters. The class in focus covers, for instance, the beta(a, b)-coalescents with a > 1. We show that some large-sample properties of these processes can be derived by coupling the coalescent with an increasing Lévy process (subordinator), and by exploiting parallels with the theory of regenerative composition structures. In particular, we discuss the limit distributions of the absorption time and the number of… 

The time to absorption in Λ-coalescents

Abstract We present a law of large numbers and a central limit theorem for the time to absorption of Λ-coalescents with dust started from n blocks, as n→∞. The proofs rely on an approximation of the

Λ-coalescents: a survey

Λ-coalescents model the evolution of a coalescing system in which any number of components randomly sampled from the whole may merge into larger blocks. This survey focuses on related combinatorial

The of the last merger and time reversal in Lambda-coalescents

We consider the number of blocks involved in the last merger of a Λ-coalescent started with n blocks. We give conditions under which, as n → ∞ , the sequence of these random variables a) is tight, b)

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 particles

For exchangeable coalescents with dust the rate of convergence as the sample size tends to infinity of the scaled block counting process to the frequency of singleton process is determined. This rate

On the time to absorption in $\Lambda$-coalescents

We present a law of large numbers and a central limit theorem for the time to absorption of $\Lambda$-coalescents, started from $n$ blocks, as $n \to \infty$. The proofs rely on an approximation of

On the block counting process and the fixation line of exchangeable coalescents

We study the block counting process and the fixation line of exchangeable coalescents. Formulas for the infinitesimal rates of both processes are provided. It is shown that the block counting process

A survey of the -coalescents

coalescents model evolution of a coalescing system in which any number of com- ponents randomly sampled from the whole may merge in larger blocks. This survey focuses on related combinatorial

Scaling limits for the block counting process and the fixation line for a class of Λ-coalescents

. We provide scaling limits for the block counting process and the fixation line of Λ coalescents as the initial state n tends to infinity under the assumption that the measure Λ on [0 , 1] satisfies
