Abstract

We formulate and prove a shape theorem for a continuous-time continuous-space stochastic growth model under certain general conditions. Similar to the classical lattice growth models, the proof makes use of the subadditive ergodic theorem. A precise expression for the speed of propagation is given in the case of a truncated free-branching birth rate.
