Profile of a self-similar growth-fragmentation
A self-similar growth-fragmentation describes the evolution of particles that grow and split as time passes. Its genealogy yields a self-similar continuum tree endowed with an intrinsic measure. Extending results of Haas  for pure fragmentations, we relate the existence of an absolutely continuous profile to a simple condition in terms of the index of self-similarity and the so-called cumulant of the growth-fragmentation. When absolutely continuous, we approximate the profile by a function of the small fragments, and compute the Hausdorff dimension in the singular case. Applications to Boltzmann random planar maps are emphasized, exploiting recently established connections between growth-fragmentations and random maps [1, 5].
