Abstract : We study the impact on shape parameters of an underlying Bienaymé-Galton-Watson branching process height, width and first hitting time, of having a non-spatial branching mechanism with infinite variance.
Aiming at providing a comparative study of the spread of an epidemics whose dynamics is given by the modulus of a branching Brownian motion BBM we then consider spatial branching processes in dimension d, not necessarily integer.
The underlying branching mechanism is then either a binary branching model or one presenting infinite variance.
In particular we evaluate the chance px of being hit if the epidemics started away at distance x.
We compute the large x tail probabilities of this event, both when the branching mechanism is regular and when it exhibits very large fluctuations.
