The asymptotic behavior of certain birth processes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a connection between discrete birth process and a certain family of multivariate interpolation polynomials. This enables us to compute all asymptotic moments of the birth process, generalizing previously known results for the mean and variance.
