Martingales in self-similar growth-fragmentations and their connections with random planar maps


Bertoin, Jean; Budd, Timothy; Curien, Nicolas; Kortchemski, Igor (2018). Martingales in self-similar growth-fragmentations and their connections with random planar maps. Probability Theory and Related Fields, 172(3-4):663-724.

Abstract

The purpose of the present work is twofold. First, we develop the theory of general self-similar growth-fragmentation processes by focusing on martingales which appear naturally in this setting and by recasting classical results for branching random walks in this framework. In particular, we establish many-to-one formulas for growth-fragmentations and define the notion of intrinsic area of a growth-fragmentation. Second, we identify a distinguished family of growth-fragmentations closely related to stable Lévy processes, which are then shown to arise as the scaling limit of the perimeter process in Markovian explorations of certain random planar maps with large degrees (which are, roughly speaking, the dual maps of the stable maps of Le Gall and Miermont in Ann Probab 39:1–69, 2011). As a consequence of this result, we are able to identify the law of the intrinsic area of these distinguished growth-fragmentations. This generalizes a geometric connection between large Boltzmann triangulations and a certain growth-fragmentation process, which was established in Bertoin et al. (Ann Probab, accepted).
