We study Coalescing Random Walks on general graphs. We determine the asymptotic of the probability that the origin is occupied at time t for transient vertex-transitive graphs. Previously this probability was only known for $\mathbb{Z}^d$. We prove analogous results for finite graphs (vertex transitive or the configuration model with minimal degree 3) under certain finitary notions of transience. In particular, it follows that the number of remaining particles evolves like Kingman's coalescence up to a scaling of the time by a constant with a certain probabilistic interpretation.

Joint work with Shuangping Li,, Dong Yao, and Lingfu Zhang.
