On the reverse process of a critical multitype Galton-Watson processes without variances. (English) Zbl 0532.60078
The reverse process of a Galton-Watson branching process was introduced by W. W. Esty [J. Appl. Probab. 12, 574-580 (1975; Zbl 0313.60056)], who proved, among other things, a gamma limit law in the critical one-type case. The present author [J. Multivariate Anal. 12, 161-177 (1982; Zbl 0492.60081)] extended this result to the multitype case when the variances of the offspring distribution exists. In the present paper he extends his results to the case where these variances do not exist but the tails of the offspring distributions satisfy a regular variation condition.
