# Krishna Athreya : Coalescence in Galton-Watson trees

Consider a Galton-Watson tree. Pick two individuals at random by simple random sampling from the nth generation and trace heir lines of descent back in time till they meet. Call that generation X_n. In this talk we will discuss the probability distribution of X_n and its limits for the four cases m <1, m=1, m greater than 1 but finite, and m infinite, where m is the mean offspring size.
