Simulation Branching Processes by Mixing Distributions

The main aim of this paper is to study the behavior of mixed distributions in branching processes. We show that the mixed distribution cannot effect on the number of particles in the nth period and it must be ignored for further simulations.

Keywords: Branching processes; Monte Carlo; Mixed distributions
