Conditions for extinction in certain bisexual Galton–Watson branching processes

Abstract

A multitype branching process, the n-family community mating process, is introduced for the purpose of comparing extinction probabilities with those of bisexual Galton–Watson branching processes. Consideration of known properties of standard multitype branching processes leads to conditions which are both necessary and sufficient for extinction in a bisexual Galton–Watson branching process. An application is then made to the counterexample of the author's earlier paper.
