Recursive construction of continuum random trees and some contributions to the theory of tree-valued stochastic processes

Abstract:

We introduce a general recursive method to construct continuum random trees (CRTs) from i.i.d. copies of a string of beads, that is, any random interval equipped with a random discrete measure. We prove the existence of these CRTs as a new application of the fixpoint method formalised in high generality by Aldous and Bandyopadhyay. We further apply this recursive construction to "embed" Duquesne and Le Gall's stable tree into a binary compact CRT in a way that solves an open problem p...
