Abstract : The evolution of a family of particles is studied; each of these particles is characterized by a real valued quantity which is called its energy. It is assumed /hat the process originates at ''time'' t = 0 with a single ''parent'' particle of energy X sub zero, which after a time T splits into N other particles of energies X sub 1 to X sub N respectively. Each of these ''offspring'' particles then behaves as a parent; its behavior depending only on its energy, and being independent of any other existing particles or of the history of the process.
