Sujet : The broadcasting problem

Résumé :

Consider a large rooted tree, where the root-vertex of the tree has a random bit value assigned. Every other vertex has the same bit value as its parent with probability 1-q and the opposite value with probability q, where q\in [0,1]. The broadcasting problem consists in estimating the value of the root bit, upon observing the unlabelled tree graph and the bit values associated with a subset of the vertices. I will discuss such results on various tree classes and, in particular, on random recursive trees created either by the uniform attachment model or by the linear preferential attachment model.
