If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Andrew Treglown. In the analysis of critical Galton-Watson trees conditional on their sizes, two complementary approaches have proved fruitful over the last decades. First, the so-called size-biased tree allows the study of local properties such as node degrees. Second, the global scaling limit, the Continuum Random tree, provides access to the study of average or extreme node depths. In this talk, I will discuss the approximation of the tree by subtrees with bounded node degrees. Here, the so-called “heavy subtrees” play an important role. An application will be given in terms of uniform Apollonian networks.
