  • We reconsider the Eigen's quasi-species model for competing self-reproductive macromolecules in populations characterized by a single-peaked fitness landscape. The use of ideas and tools borrowed from polymers theory and statistical mechanics, allows us to exactly solve the model for generic DNA lengths d. The mathematical shape of the quasi-species confined around the master sequence is perturbatively found in powers of 1/d at large d. We rigorously prove the existence of the error-threshold… CONTINUE READING
