A Note on the Supercritical Branching Processes with Random Environments
Some further results in the theory of Galton Watson processes are extended to the more general set up of a branching process with random environments. The random distribution function of the limit random variable in the supercritical case (Athreya and Karlin, Ann. Math. Statist., 40 (1969) 743-763) is investigated, and a zero-one law is established. It is shown that this random distribution function is w.p. 1. either absolutely continuous on $(0, \infty)$ with only a jump at the origin or w.p. 1. it is singular. A set of conditions is given under which the former case holds.
