Some asymptotics in preferential attachment random graphs in a randon environment

Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss an embedding into branching processes of some preferential attachment growth schemes from which a LLN, first proved by Bollobas et al 2001, can be recovered. We will also discuss large deviations from this LLN with respect to the number of `leaves' (vertices with degree 1).
