Expected size of a tree in the fixed point forestArticle

Authors: Samuel Regan ; Erik Slivken

    We study the local limit of the fixed-point forest, a tree structure associated to a simple sorting algorithm on permutations. This local limit can be viewed as an infinite random tree that can be constructed from a Poisson point process configuration on $[0,1]^\mathbb{N}$. We generalize this random tree, and compute the expected size and expected number of leaves of a random rooted subtree in the generalized version. We also obtain bounds on the variance of the size.
