Λ-coalescents: a survey

2014 Journal of Applied Probability  
Λ-coalescents model the evolution of a coalescing system in which any number of components randomly sampled from the whole may merge into larger blocks. This survey focuses on related combinatorial constructions and the large-sample behaviour of the functionals which characterize in some way the speed of coalescence.
