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 the logarithm of the block-counting process of $\Lambda$-coalescents with a dust component by means of a drifted subordinator.

On Λ-Coalescents with Dust Component
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
The size of the last merger and time reversal in $\Lambda$-coalescents
Author(s): Kersting, Goetz; Schweinsberg, Jason; Wakolbinger, Anton | Abstract: We consider the number of blocks involved in the last merger of a $\Lambda$-coalescent started with $n$ blocks. We give
On hitting probabilities of beta coalescents and absorption times of coalescents that come down from infinity
Let X = (Xk)k=0;1;::: denote the jump chain of the block counting process of the -coalescent with = (2 ; ) being the beta distribution with parameter 2 (0;2). A solution for the hitting probability
Random Recursive Trees and the Bolthausen-Sznitman Coalesent
We describe a representation of the Bolthausen-Sznitman coalescent in terms of the cutting of random recursive trees. Using this representation, we prove results concerning the final collision of the
Conditions for exchangeable coalescents to come down from infinity
An improved condition to come down from infinity for exchangeable coalescent processes with simultaneous multiple collisions of ancestral lineages is provided. For non-critical coalescents this leads
A NECESSARY AND SUFFICIENT CONDITION FOR THE Λ-COALESCENT TO COME DOWN FROM INFINITY
Let Λ be a finite measure on the Borel subsets of [0, 1]. Let Π∞ be the standard Λ-coalescent, which is defined in [4] and also studied in [5]. Then Π∞ is a Markov process whose state space is the
The general coalescent with asynchronous mergers of ancestral lines
Take a sample of individuals in the fixed-size population model with exchangeable family sizes. Follow the ancestral lines for the sampled individuals backwards in time to observe the ancestral
