We study supercritical branching Brownian motion on the real line starting at the origin and with constant drift $c$. At the point $x > 0$, we add an absorbing barrier, i.e.\ individuals touching the barrier are instantly killed without producing offspring. It is known that there is a critical drift $c_0$, such that this process becomes extinct almost surely if and only if $c \ge c_0$. In this case, if $Z_x$ denotes the number of individuals absorbed at the barrier, we give an asymptotic for $P… 

Population Stabilization in Branching Brownian Motion With Absorption

We consider, through PDE methods, branching Brownian motion with drift and absorption. It is well know that there exists a critical drift which separates those processes which die out almost surely

Speed and fluctuations of N-particle branching Brownian motion with spatial selection

We consider branching Brownian motion on the real line with the following selection mechanism: every time the number of particles exceeds a (large) given number N, only the N right-most particles are

A Strong Law of Large Numbers for Super-Critical Branching Brownian Motion with Absorption

We consider a (one-dimensional) branching Brownian motion process with a general offspring distribution having at least two moments, and in which all particles have a drift towards the origin where

Number of particles absorbed in a BBM on the extinction event

We consider a branching Brownian motion which starts from $0$ with drift $\mu \in \mathbb{R}$ and we focus on the number $Z_x$ of particles killed at $-x$, where $x>0$. Let us call $\mu_0$ the

Branching Brownian motion in an expanding ball and application to the mild obstacle problem

We first consider a d-dimensional branching Brownian motion (BBM) evolving in an expanding ball, where the particles are killed at the boundary of the ball, and the expansion is subdiffusive in time.

Branching Brownian motion with selection

In this thesis, branching Brownian motion (BBM) is a random particle system where the particles diffuse on the real line according to Brownian motions and branch at constant rate into a random number

Hydrodynamics of the N-BBM Process

The Branching Brownian Motions (BBM) are particles performing independent Brownian motions in $\mathbb R$ and each particle at rate 1 creates a new particle at her current position; the newborn

Total progeny in killed branching random walk

We consider a branching random walk for which the maximum position of a particle in the n’th generation, Rn, has zero speed on the linear scale: Rn/n → 0 as n → ∞. We further remove (“kill”) any

Total number of births on the negative half-line of the binary branching Brownian motion in the boundary case

The binary branching Brownian motion in the boundary case is a particle system on the real line behaving as follows. It starts with a unique particle positioned at the origin at time 0 . The particle

Tail asymptotics for the total progeny of the critical killed branching random walk

We consider a branching random walk on (cid:82) with a killing barrier at zero. At criticality, the process becomes eventually extinct, and the total progeny Z is therefore finite. We show that P ( Z

Multiplicative Martingales for Spatial Branching Processes

Out of simplicity, we restrict ourselves to consider the dyadic brownian branching process (Nt, t ∈ R+) on the real line. By definition of this process, its particles perform independent brownian

The Kesten-Stigum theorem is a fundamental criterion for the rate of growth of a supercritical branching process, showing that an L log L condition is decisive. In critical and subcritical cases,
