### Renormalisation of random hierarchial systems

Abstract:

This thesis considers a number of problems which are related to the study of random fractals. We define a class of iterations (which we call random hierarchical systems) of probability distributions, which are defined by applying a random map to a set of k independent and identically distributed random variables. Classical examples of this sort of iteration include the Strong Law of Large Numbers, Galton-Watson branching processes, and the construction of random self-sim...
