### Biased random walks on a Galton-Watson tree with leaves

Abstract:

We consider a biased random walk $X_n$ on a Galton-Watson tree with leaves in the sub-ballistic regime. We prove that there exists an explicit constant $\gamma= \gamma(\beta) \in (0,1)$, depending on the bias $\beta$, such that $X_n$ is of order $n^{\gamma}$. Denoting $\Delta_n$ the hitting time of level $n$, we prove that $\Delta_n/n^{1/\gamma}$ is tight. Moreover we show that $\Delta_n/n^{1/\gamma}$ does not converge in law (at least for large values of $\beta$). We prove that along the seq...
