The full Brownian web as scalling limit of stochastic flows

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we construct an object which we call the full Brownian web (FBW) and prove that the collection of all spacetime trajectories of a class of one-dimensional stochastic flows converges weakly, under diffusive rescaling, to the FBW. The (forward) paths of the FBW include the coalescing Brownian motions of the ordinary Brownian web along with bifurcating paths. Convergence of rescaled stochastic flows to the FBW follows from general characterization and convergence theorems that we present here combined with earlier results of Piterbarg.
