We study a branching Brownian motion Z with a generic branching law, evolving in Rd, where a field of Poissonian traps is present. Each trap is a ball with constant radius. We focus on two cases of Poissonian fields: a uniform field and a radially decaying field. Using classical results on the convergence of the speed of branching Brownian motion, we establish precise results on the population size of Z, given that it avoids the trap field, while staying alive up to time t. The results are…
