Title: Stable Point Processes, Branching Random Walk and A Conjecture of Brunet and Derrida
Abstract of Talk
We shall obtain the weak limit of a sequence of point processes induced by a branching random walk with regularly varying displacements. In particular, we show that a conjecture of two physicists, Brunet and Derrida (2011), remains valid in this setup, and recover a result of Durrett (1983). The talk is based on a joint work with Rajat Subhra Hazra and Parthanil Roy.
