Matthieu Jonckheere. UBA Front Propagation and Quasi-Stationary Distributions for One-Dimensional Lévy Processes Facultad de Matemáticas, Campus San Joaquín, PUC Chile (Sala por confirmar) Abstract: We jointly investigate the existence of quasi-stationary distributions for one-dimensional Lévy processes and the existence of traveling waves for the Fisher-Kolmogorov-Petrovskii-Piskunov (F-KPP) equation associated with the same motion. Using probabilistic ideas developed by S. Harris for the F-KPP equation, we show that the existence of a traveling wave for the F-KPP equation associated with a centered Lévy processes that branches at rate r and travels at velocity c is equivalent to the existence of a quasi-stationary distribution for a Lévy process with the same movement but drifted by -c and killed at zero, with mean absorption time 1/r. This allows to generalize the known existence conditions in both contexts.
