This quantity gathers papers initially offered on the 3rd Workshop on Branching procedures and their purposes (WBPA15), which used to be held from 7 to ten April 2015 in Badajoz, Spain ( The papers handle a extensive variety of theoretical and useful elements of branching strategy idea. extra, they amply reveal that the theoretical study during this sector continues to be important and topical, in addition to the relevance of branching ideas within the improvement of theoretical methods to fixing new difficulties in utilized fields comparable to Epidemiology, Biology, Genetics, and, after all, inhabitants Dynamics.

The subject matters coated can greatly be categorized into the next areas:

1. Coalescent Branching Processes

2. Branching Random Walks

3. inhabitants progress types in various and Random Environments

4. Size/Density/Resource-Dependent Branching Models

5. Age-Dependent Branching Models

6. specific Branching Models

7. functions in Epidemiology

8. functions in Biology and Genetics

Offering a useful reference consultant to modern branching technique idea, the e-book additionally explores many open difficulties, paving the way in which for destiny research.
