Near-critical survival probability of branching Brownian motion with an absorbing barrier"

7 November 2011
Simon Harris

We will consider a branching Brownian motion where particles have a drift $-\rho$, binary branch at rate $\beta$ and are killed if they hit the origin. This process is supercritical  if $\beta>\rho^2/2$ and we will discuss the survival probability in the regime as criticality is approached. (Joint work with Elie Aidekon)
