Evolution dynamics in terraced NK landscapes

  title={Evolution dynamics in terraced NK landscapes},
  author={Paolo Sibani and Andreas Pedersen},
We consider populations of agents evolving in the fitness landscape of an extended NK model with a tunable amount of neutrality. We study the statistics of the jumps in mean population fitness which occur in the ‘punctuated equilibrium’ regime and show that, for a wide range of landscapes parameters, the number of events in time t is Poisson distributed… CONTINUE READING
