# The genealogy of branching Brownian motion with absorption

@article{Berestycki2013TheGO, title={The genealogy of branching Brownian motion with absorption}, author={Julien Berestycki and Nathanael Berestycki and Jason Schweinsberg}, journal={Annals of Probability}, year={2013}, volume={41}, pages={527-618} }

We consider a system of particles which perform branching Brownian motion with negative drift and are killed upon reaching zero, in the near-critical regime where the total population stays roughly constant with approximately N particles. We show that the characteristic time scale for the evolution of this population is of order (logN) 3 , in the sense that when time is measured in these units, the scaled number of particles converges to a variant of Neveu’s continuous-state branching process…
