Convergence rate of the limit theorem of a Galton–Watson tree with neutral mutations
We consider a Galton–Watson branching process with neutral mutations (infinite alleles model), and we decompose the entire population into sub-families of individuals carrying the same allele. Bertoin (2010) describes the asymptotic shape of the process of the sizes of the allelic sub-families when the initial population is large and the mutation rate small. The limit in law is a certain continuous state-space branching process (CSBP). In the present work, we obtain a Central Limit Theorem, thus completing Bertoin’s work.
