Abstract

We establish a characterization of coagulation-fragmentation processes, such that the induced birth and death processes depicting the total number of groups at time t≥0 are time homogeneous. Based on this, we provide a characterization of mean-field Gibbs coagulation-fragmentation models, which extends the one derived by Hendriks et al. As a by-product of our results, the class of solvable models is widened and a question posed by N. Berestycki and Pitman is answered, under restriction to mean-field models.
