Splitting trees with neutral Poissonian mutations I: Small families
We consider a neutral dynamical model of biological diversity, where individuals live and reproduce independently. They have i.i.d. lifetime durations (which are not necessarily exponentially distributed) and give birth (singly) at constant rate b. Such a genealogical tree is usually called a splitting tree , and the population counting process (Nt;t≥0) is a homogeneous, binary Crump–Mode–Jagers process.
