Títol: Relationship between victorian eugenecists and slot machine free-game- Branching Processes.
Resum: Originaly, the first branching processes where studied to ensure thes urvival of surnames on Victorian Era aristocrat familes. These use is actually futile as insuficient data, changing laws or simply name changes (ask Victoria’s grandson, Edward) make this idealization irrelevant. Since then, branching processes have found uses beyond surnames, like studing general reproduction, or neutron counts on nuclear reactions. In this talk we will present multi-type branching proceses and how they can be used to model and control populations of germs (or how to know if a slot machine is good).
