A remark on localization for branching random walks in random environment. (English) Zbl 1225.60158
Summary: We prove a localization-result for branching random walks in random environment, namely that if the process does not die out, the most populated site will infinitely often contain more than a fixed percentage of the population. This has already been proven before by Y. Hu and N. Yoshida [Stochastic Processes Appl. 119, No. 5, 1632–1651 (2009; Zbl 1161.60341)], but it is possible to drop their assumption that particles may not die.
