Branching processes

August 18, 2014 — February 7, 2020

Figure 1

A diverse class of stochastic models that I am mildly obsessed with, where over some index set (usually time, space or both) there are distributed births of some kind, and we count the total population.

In particular, I am interested in “pure birth” branching processes, where each event leads to certain numbers of offspring with a certain probability. These correspond to certain types of “cluster” and “self excitation” processes.

These come in Markov and non-Markov flavours, depending on, loosely, whether the notional particles in the system have a memoryless life cycle or not.

1 To learn

  • Basic handling of process defined on a multidimensional index set, i.e. space-time processes and branching random fields. (“cluster processes”) Maybe I’ve done that over at spatial point processes by now?
  • The various connections to trees, and hence the connection to networks.
  • Connection to stable processes and Lévy processes.

2 We do not care about time

Cascade models.

3 Discrete index, discrete state, Markov: The Galton-Watson process

This section got long enough to break out separately. See my notes on long-memory Galton-Watson process.

4 Continuous index, discrete state: the Hawkes Process

If you have a integer-valued state space, but a continuous time index, and linear intensities, then this is a Hawkes point process, the cluster point process. See my masters thesis, or my Hawkes process notes

5 Continuous index, continuous state

Figure 2

Aldous gives an expo on the Continuous State Branching process. I do not know much about these. Perhaps I could know more if I read Z. Li (2011), which introduces CSBPs as a special case of Measure-valued branching processes, and also connects them with supecprocesses (Etheridge 2000; Dynkin 2004, 1991) were recommended to me for the latter.

5.1 Parameter estimation

I’m curious about this, and Lévy process inference in general. It’s interesting because such processes are always incompletely sampled; What’s the best you can do with finitely many samples from a continuous branching process? For the simple case of the Weiner process (as a Lévy process) there is a well-understood estimation theory, with twiddly flourishes on top. For CSBPs I am not aware of any general methods. (Overbeck 1998) seems to be one of the few refs and is rather constrained. Surely the finance folks are onto this?

6 Discrete index, continuous state

Popular in physics as a contagion model. See Burridge (2013a);Burridge (2013b) for some handy relations between these models, Gamma processes, martingales and limits of negative binomial distributions via renewal theory and Kendall’s identity.

7 Special issues for multivariate branching processes

If you are looking at cross-excitation between variables then I have some additional matter at contagion processes.

8 Classic data sets

Data sets which might be explored for their branching process nature tend towards the epidemiological.

9 Implementations

IHSEP is Feng Chen’s software to continuous index, discrete state branching processes.

Spatstat is for spatial point processes.
