An evolutionary model that satisfies detailed balance

27 Feb 2019  ·  Jüri Lember, Chris Watkins ·

We propose a class of evolutionary models that involves an arbitrary exchangeable process as the breeding process and different selection schemes. In those models, a new genome is born according to the breeding process, and then a genome is removed according to the selection scheme that involves fitness... Thus the population size remains constant. The process evolves according to a Markov chain, and, unlike in many other existing models, the stationary distribution -- so called mutation-selection equilibrium -- can be easily found and studied. The behaviour of the stationary distribution when the population size increases is our main object of interest. Several phase-transition theorems are proved. read more
