We consider a branching random walk on a multitype (with Q types of particles), supercritical Galton–Watson tree which satisfies the Kesten–Stigum condition. We assume that the displacements associated with the particles of type Q have regularly varying tails of index
, while the other types of particles have lighter tails than the particles of type Q. In this paper we derive the weak limit of the sequence of point processes associated with the positions of the particles in the nth generation. We verify that the limiting point process is a randomly scaled scale-decorated Poisson point process using the tools developed by Bhattacharya, Hazra, and Roy (2018). As a consequence, we obtain the asymptotic distribution of the position of the rightmost particle in the nth generation.
In this paper we analyze the so-called Parisian ruin probability, which arises when the surplus process stays below 0 longer than a fixed amount of time ζ > 0. We focus on a general spectrally negative Lévy insurance risk process. For this class of processes, we derive an expression for the ruin probability in terms of quantities that can be calculated explicitly in many models. We find its Cramér-type and convolution-equivalent asymptotics when reserves tend to ∞. Finally, we analyze some explicit examples.
In this paper we consider a general Lévy process X reflected at a downward periodic barrier At and a constant upper barrier K, giving a process VKt=Xt +LAt−LKt. We find the expression for a loss rate defined by lK=ELK1 and identify its asymptotics as K→∞ when X has light-tailed jumps and EX1<0.
We investigate the tail behaviour of the steady-state distribution of a stochastic recursion that generalises Lindley's recursion. This recursion arises in queueing systems with dependent interarrival and service times, and includes alternating service systems and carousel storage systems as special cases. We obtain precise tail asymptotics in three qualitatively different cases, and compare these with existing results for Lindley's recursion and for alternating service systems.
We give precise asymptotic estimates of the tail behavior of the distribution of the supremum of a process with regenerative increments. Our results cover four qualitatively different regimes involving both light tails and heavy tails, and are illustrated with examples arising in queueing theory and insurance risk.
In this paper we study the busy period in GI/G/1 work-conserving queues. We give the exact asymptotics of the tail distribution of the busy period under the light tail assumptions. We also study the workload process in the M/G/1 system conditioned to stay positive.
