We give results about the existence of a strong local survival regime and we prove that, unlike local and global survival, in continuous time, strong local survival is not a monotone property in the general case (though it is monotone if the branching random walk is quasi transitive).
Strong local survival of branching random walks is not monotone
We also show that, unlike local and global survival, even in the irreducible case, one may have strong local survival or non-strong local survival depending on the starting vertex.
