Markov processes with redistribution

Abstract

We study a class of stochastic processes evolving in the interior of a set D according to an underlying Markov kernel, undergoing jumps to a random point x in D with distribution vξ(dx) as soon as they reach a point £ outside D. We give conditions on the family of measures vε(dx) preventing that infinitely many jumps occur in finite time (explosiveness), conditions for ergodicity and the existence of a spectral gap. The setup is applied to a multitude of models considered recently, including particle systems like the Fleming -Viot branching process and a new variant of the Bak-Sneppen dynamics from evolutionary biology. The last part of the paper is expository and discusses the relation with quasi-stationary distributions.
