Branching strategies shape one of many classical fields of utilized likelihood and are nonetheless an lively sector of study. the sphere has by way of now grown so huge and numerous entire and unified deal with ment is not often attainable anymore, not to mention in a single quantity. So, our goal right here has been to unmarried out a few of the more moderen advancements and to provide them with adequate heritage fabric to acquire a mostly self-contained therapy meant to complement earlier mo nographs instead of to overlap them. The physique of the textual content is split into 4 components, each one of its personal taste. half A is a quick advent, stressing examples and purposes. partially B we provide a self-contained and up to date pre sentation of the classical restrict concept of easy branching approaches, viz. the Gal ton-Watson ( Bienayme-G-W) approach and that i ts non-stop time analogue. half C bargains with the restrict concept of Il!arkov branching methods with a normal set of varieties lower than stipulations adapted to (multigroup) branching diffusions on bounded domain names, a environment which additionally covers the standard multitype case. while the perspective in components A and B is kind of pedagogical, the purpose of half C is to regard a wide subfield to the top measure of generality and completeness possi"ble. therefore the exposition there's every now and then fairly technical.
