We use a general additive quantitative genetic model to study the evolution of costly female mate choice by the “handicap” principle. Two necessary conditions must be satisfied for costly preferenceExpand

How should we define goodness?--reputation dynamics in indirect reciprocity.
Theory of indirect reciprocity is important in explaining cooperation between humans. Since a partner of a social interaction often changes, an individual should assess his partner by using socialExpand

Dynamics of chronic myeloid leukaemia
The clinical success of the ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor imatinib in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) serves as a model for molecularly targeted therapy of cancer, but at least two critical questionsExpand

Fisher's runaway process is the standard explanation of the evolution of exaggerated female preferences. But mathematical formulations of Fisher's process (haploid and additive diploid) show itExpand

Demographic Theory for an Open Marine Population with Space-Limited Recruitment
We introduce a demographic model for a local population of sessile marine invertebrates that have a pelagic larval phase. The processes in the model are the settling of larvae onto empty space, andExpand

Self-organization of the vascular system in plant leaves: inter-dependent dynamics of auxin flux and carrier proteins.
The vegetative hormone Auxin is involved in vascular tissues formation throughout the plant. Trans-membrane carrier proteins transporting auxin from cell to cell and distributed asymmetrically aroundExpand

Pollen coupling of forest trees: forming synchronized and periodic reproduction out of chaos.
Many of the tree species in mature forests show masting; their reproductive activity has a large variance between years and is often synchronized between different individuals. In this paper, weExpand

The leading eight: social norms that can maintain cooperation by indirect reciprocity.
The theory of indirect reciprocation explains the evolution of cooperation among unrelated individuals, engaging in one-shot interaction. Using reputation, a player acquires information on who areExpand

Optimal size of storage for recovery after unpredictable disturbances
Terrestrial plants often live in environments in which above-ground photosynthetic organs (production parts) are suddenly removed by unpredictable disturbances, such as fire, frost, desiccation,Expand

Stochastic Tunnels in Evolutionary Dynamics
We study a situation that arises in the somatic evolution of cancer. Consider a finite population of replicating cells and a sequence of mutations: type 0 can mutate to type 1, which can mutate toExpand
