We consider linear preferential attachment trees which are specific scale-free trees also known as Albert-Barabási trees or random plane-oriented recursive trees. Starting with a linear preferential attachment tree of size n we show that repeatedly applying a so-called lifting yields a continuous-time Markov chain on linear preferential attachment trees. Each such tree induces a partition of...

Statistics at UC Berkeley: We are a community engaged in research and education in probability and statistics. In addition to developing fundamental theory and methodology, we are actively involved in statistical problems that arise in such diverse fields as molecular biology, geophysics, astronomy, AIDS research, neurophysiology, sociology, political science, education, demography, and the U.S. Census. We have forged strong interdisciplinary links with other departments and areas of study, particularly biostatistics, mathematics, computer science, and biology, and actively seek to recruit graduate students and faculty who can help to build and maintain such links. We also offer a statistical consulting service each semester.
