Life Amidst Singularities - Evolutionary Consequenes of an Almost-Faithful Replication
Michel DURINX (Theoretical Biology, Leiden University)
2009-06-08 13:15 - 2009-06-08 13:15
KLI for Evolution and Cognition Research, Altenberg, Austria
Organized by KLI

Topic description:
This presentation will discuss the process of repeated invasion by only slightly differing mutants, and try to find out the underlying abstract geometrical patterns. By connecting several developments, it will show how the evolutionary analysis of so-called Adaptive Dynamics models (i.e., large systems where mutations are rare and of limited effect) can be handled in general, both theoretically and practically.


Biographical note:
Michel Durinx is a mathematical and theoretical biologist who did his PhD work ("Life Amidst Singularities") at Leiden University, the Netherlands, where he is associated with the Theoretical Biology Group.
