Thomas Mountford (EPFL): Contact Processes on Trees

Academic or specialist Colloquium / Congress / Forum

We consider a growth model called the contact process in various environments
and show that such a process on a tree of bounded degree must survive
for an exponential (in the number of vertices) amount of time provided
the parameter of infection is above a natural critical value.
