Titel: "The critical beta-splitting tree"
Vortragende: Svante Janson (Univ. Uppsala)

Inhalt: Aldous (1993, 2023) has introduced the "critical beta-splitting random tree" (an interesting special case of more general "beta-splitting trees"). This tree is constructed from a set of $n$ leaves, which are randomly partitioned into two subsets, with the probability of subsets of sizes $j$ and $n-j$ being proportional to $1/j(n-j)$; continue recursively in each subset with at least two elements. The result defines a binary tree with $n$ leaves. The beta-splitting trees were partly motivated by the study of evolutionary trees (although they are not realistic biological models). I see them as purely mathematical objects with interesting properties, and I will talk about some of these, using a variety of methods including both probabilistic (continuous-time Markov processes; exchangeable partitions) and analytic (an interesting Mellin transform). (Based on forthcoming joint work with David Aldous, and perhaps others.)
