The average branching number and cluster size in branched actin solutions with filament capping are evaluated using analytic theory and simulation methods. The average number of daughter branches per filament in steady state is much less than unity, regardless of the concentration of branching stimulant. Much more highly branched structures are obtained in the initial stages of polymerization.
