P0=.5, P1=.1,P3=.4
Suppose X0=1
then
What is the prob. that the population is extinct in the third generation, given that it was not extinct in the second generation?
It looks simple, but I am getting different answer from my classmates...
Thank you~~!
Given a branching process with the following offspring distributions,
p0=.5, p1=.1, p3=.4,
and suppose X0=1,
what is the probability that the population is extinct in the third generation, given that it was not extinct in the second generation?
Sorry for the confusion..
