On the genealogy of conditioned stable Lévy forests

Abstract : We give a realization of the stable Lévy forest of a given size conditioned by its mass from the path of the unconditioned forest. Then, we prove an invariance principle for this conditioned forest by considering $k$ independent Galton-Watson trees whose offspring distribution is in the domain of attraction of any stable law conditioned on their total progeny to be equal to $n$. We prove that when $n$ and $k$ tend towards $+\infty$, under suitable rescaling, the associated coding random walk, the contour and height processes converge in law on the Skorokhod space respectively towards the "first passage bridge" of a stable Lévy process with no negative jumps and its height process.
