We present some aspects of the so-called additive coalescence, with a focus on its connections with random trees, Brownian excursion, certain bridges with exchangeable increments, Levy processes, and sticky particle systems. 
Lesser known miracles of Burgers equation
Abstract This article is a short introduction to the surprising appearance of Burgers equation in some basic probabilistic models.
Universality Classes in Burgers Turbulence
We establish necessary and sufficient conditions for the shock statistics to approach self-similar form in Burgers turbulence with Lévy process initial data. The proof relies upon an elegant closureExpand

Complete Integrability of Shock Clustering and Burgers Turbulence
We consider scalar conservation laws with convex flux and random initial data. The Hopf–Lax formula induces a deterministic evolution of the law of the initial data. In a recent article, we derived aExpand
The Scaling Attractor and Ultimate Dynamics for Smoluchowski’s Coagulation Equations
The study of scaling limits explains how Smoluchowski dynamics “compactifies” in a natural way that accounts for clusters of zero and infinite size (dust and gel). Expand
Kinetic Theory and Lax Equations for Shock Clustering and Burgers Turbulence
We study shock statistics in the scalar conservation law ∂tu+∂xf(u)=0, x∈ℝ, t>0, with a convex flux f and spatially random initial data. We show that the Markov property (in x) is preserved for aExpand
Dini derivatives for Exchangeable Increment processes and applications
Let $X$ be an exchangeable increment (EI) process whose sample paths are of infinite variation. We prove that, for any fixed $t$ almost surely, \[ \limsup_{h\to 0 \pm} (X_{t+h}-X_t)/h=\inftyExpand


Eternal additive coalescents and certain bridges with exchangeable increments
Aldous and Pitman have studied the asymptotic behavior of the additive coalescent processes using a nested family random forests derived by logging certain inhomogeneous continuum random trees. HereExpand
Ordered Additive Coalescent and Fragmentations Associatedto Lévy Processes with No Positive Jumps
We study here the fragmentation processes that can be derived from Levy processes with no positive jumps in the same manner as in the case of a Brownian motion (cf. Bertoin [4]). One of ourExpand
Clustering statistics for sticky particles with Brownian initial velocity
We establish a connection between two different models of clustering: the deterministic model of sticky particles which describes the evolution of a system of infinitesimal particles governed by theExpand
Deterministic and stochastic models for coalescence (aggregation and coagulation): a review of the mean-field theory for probabilists
Author(s): Aldous, DJ | Abstract: Consider N particles, which merge into clusters according to the following rule: a cluster of size x and a cluster of size y merge at (stochastic) rate K(x, y)/N,Expand
Inhomogeneous continuum random trees and the entrance boundary of the additive coalescent
Abstract. Regard an element of the set of ranked discrete distributions Δ := {(x1, x2,…):x1≥x2≥…≥ 0, ∑ixi = 1} as a fragmentation of unit mass into clusters of masses xi. The additive coalescent isExpand
A Relation between Brownian Bridge and Brownian Excursion
It is shown that Brownian excursion is equal in distribution to Brownian bridge with the origin placed at its absolute minimum. This explains why the maximum of Brownian excursion and the range ofExpand
Applications of the continuous-time ballot theorem to Brownian motion and related processes
Motivated by questions related to a fragmentation process which has been studied by Aldous, Pitman, and Bertoin, we use the continuous-time ballot theorem to establish some results regarding theExpand
A fragmentation process connected to Brownian motion
Abstract. Let (Bs, s≥ 0) be a standard Brownian motion and T1 its first passage time at level 1. For every t≥ 0, we consider ladder time set ℒ(t) of the Brownian motion with drift t, B(t)s = Bs + ts,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
Lévy Processes
Lévy processes are random processes on Euclidean space that are stochastically continuous and have stationary independent increments. They, and their stochastic integrals, have become useful tools inExpand
