Invariant measures, Hausdorff dimension and dimension drop of some harmonic measures on Galton-Watson trees
We consider infinite Galton-Watson trees without leaves together with i.i.d. random variables called marks on each of their vertices. We define a class of flow rules on marked Galton-Watson trees for which we are able, under some algebraic assumptions, to build explicit invariant measures. We apply this result, together with the ergodic theory on Galton-Watson trees developed in , to the computation of Hausdorff dimensions of harmonic measures in two cases. The first one is the harmonic measure of the (transient) $\lambda $-biased random walk on Galton-Watson trees, for which the invariant measure and the dimension were not explicitly known. The second case is a model of random walk on a Galton-Watson trees with random lengths for which we compute the dimensions of the harmonic measure and show dimension drop phenomenon for the natural metric on the boundary and another metric that depends on the random lengths.
