We give a de Finetti type representation for exchangeable random coalescent trees (formally described as semi-ultrametrics) in terms of sampling iid sequences from marked metric measure spaces. We apply this representation to define versions of tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes from a $\Xi$-lookdown model. As state spaces for these processes, we use, besides the space of isomorphy classes of metric measure spaces, also the space of isomorphy classes of marked metric measure spaces and a space… 

Pathwise construction of tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes

In a random complete and separable metric space that we call the lookdown space, we encode the genealogical distances between all individuals ever alive in a lookdown model with simultaneous multiple

Convergence of tree-valued Cannings chains

We consider sequences of tree-valued Markov chains that describe evolving genealogies in Cannings models, and we show their convergence in distribution to tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes. Under

Invariance principles for tree-valued Cannings chains

We consider sequences of tree-valued Markov chains that describe evolving genealogies in Cannings models, and we show their convergence in distribution to tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes. Under

Exchangeable coalescents, ultrametric spaces, nested interval-partitions: A unifying approach

Kingman (1978)'s representation theorem states that any exchangeable partition of N can be represented as a paintbox based on a random mass-partition. Similarly, any exchangeable composition (i.e.

Convergence of genealogies through spinal decomposition with an application to population genetics

Consider a branching Markov process with values in some general type space. Conditional on survival up to generation N , the genealogy of the extant population defines a random marked metric measure

Doob--Martin boundary of R\'emy's tree growth chain

R\'emy's algorithm is a Markov chain that iteratively generates a sequence of random trees in such a way that the $n^{\mathrm{th}}$ tree is uniformly distributed over the set of rooted, planar,

Evolving genealogies for branching populations under selection and competition

For a continuous state branching process with two types of individuals which are subject to selection and density dependent competition, we characterize the joint evolution of population size, type

Genealogies and inference for populations with highly skewed offspring distributions

TLDR
Inference methods under the infinitely-many sites model which allow both model selection and estimation of model parameters under these coalescents are discussed.

A representation of exchangeable hierarchies by sampling from random real trees

A hierarchy on a set S, also called a total partition of S, is a collection $$\mathcal {H}$$H of subsets of S such that $$S \in \mathcal {H}$$S∈H, each singleton subset of S belongs to $$\mathcal

Path-properties of the tree-valued Fleming-Viot process

We consider the tree-valued Fleming–Viot process, (Xt )t≥0 , with mutation and selection. This process models the stochastic evolution of the genealogies and (allelic) types under resampling,

Stochastic flows associated to coalescent processes

Abstract. We study a class of stochastic flows connected to the coalescent processes that have been studied recently by Möhle, Pitman, Sagitov and Schweinsberg in connection with asymptotic models

Tree-valued Fleming–Viot dynamics with mutation and selection

The Fleming-Viot measure-valued diffusion is a Markov process describing the evolution of (allelic) types under mutation, selection and random reproduction. We enrich this process by genealogical

A modified lookdown construction for the Xi-Fleming-Viot process with mutation and populations with recurrent bottlenecks

Letbe a finite measure on the unit interval. A �-Fleming-Viot process is a probability measure valued Markov process which is dual to a coalescent with multiple collisions (�-coalescent) in analogy

The Fleming-Viot measure-valued diffusion arises as the infinite population limit of various discrete genetic models with general type space. The paper gives a countable construction of the process

The measure-valued Fleming–Viot process is a diffusion which models the evolution of allele frequencies in a multi-type population. In the neutral setting the Kingman coalescent is known to generate

Generalized Fleming-Viot processes with immigration via stochastic flows of partitions

The generalized Fleming-Viot processes were defined in 1999 by Donnelly and Kurtz using a particle model and by Bertoin and Le Gall in 2003 using stochastic flows of bridges. In both methods, the key
