    Expected number of events in a simple birth-death process.




    I have a simple birth-death process with parameters, beta=4/5v and the initial population size is 6. I have calculated that the birth rate= 4/9 and the death rate=5/9 but is there a way of calculating how many events (births and deaths) there will be until this population dies out?
    I have a feeling it may use Gambler's ruin methods.
