Dynamics of lineages in adaptation to a gradual environmental change
We investigate a simple quantitative genetics model subjet to a gradual environmental change from the viewpoint of the phylogenies of the living individuals. We aim to understand better how the past
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
Metric two-level measure spaces: a state space for modeling evolving genealogies in host-parasite systems
We extend the notion of metric measure spaces to so-called metric two-level measure spaces (m2m spaces for short). An m2m space is an isomorphism class of a triple (X, r, ν), where (X, r) is a
A representation for exchangeable coalescent trees and generalized tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes
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
Some problems on branching random walks
We consider a model of inhomogeneous random graphs that extend Erdős–Rényi graphs and that shares a close connection with the multiplicative coalescence, as pointed out by Aldous [Ann. Probab., vol.

Existence of mark functions in marked metric measure spaces
We give criteria on the existence of a so-called mark function in the context of marked metric measure spaces (mmm-spaces). If an mmm-space admits a mark function, we call it functionally-marked
Spaces of algebraic measure trees and triangulations of the circle
It is shown that in the subspace of binary algebraic measure trees, weak convergence of sample shapes, sample subtree masses and sample distance matrices are all equivalent and define a compact, metrizable topology.


A compact containment result for nonlinear historical superprocess approximations for population models with trait-dependence
We consider an approximating sequence of interacting population models with branching, mutation and competition. Each individual is characterized by its trait and the traits of its ancestors. Birth-
Nonlinear historical superprocess approximations for population models with past dependence
We are interested in the evolving genealogy of a birth and death process with trait structure and ecological interactions. Traits are hereditarily transmitted from a parent to its offspring unless a
A Stochastic Model for Phylogenetic Trees
A simple stochastic model for phylogenetic trees where new types are born and die according to a birth and death chain and it is shown that if the birth rate is subcritical, it is obtained a phylogenetic tree consistent with an influenza tree.
Critical Case Stochastic Phylogenetic Tree Model via the Laplace Transform
A simple birth-and-death model that is compatible with phylogenetic trees of both influenza and HIV, depending on the birth rate parameter is proposed, and the proof of Liggett and Schinazi (2009) in the critical case is correct.
Distance measures in terms of substitution processes.
It is shown that, for non-stationary models, different tree topologies may produce identical joint distributions of letters in pairs of sequences, given the same distribution of rates, which precludes the existence of any tree-additive pairwise distance measure.
Unifying the Epidemiological and Evolutionary Dynamics of Pathogens
A phylodynamic framework for the dissection of dynamic forces that determine the diversity of epidemiological and phylogenetic patterns observed in RNA viruses of vertebrates is introduced.
Tree-valued resampling dynamics Martingale problems and applications
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
State Dependent Multitype Spatial Branching Processes and their Longtime Behavior
The paper focuses on spatial multitype branching systems with spatial components (colonies) indexed by a countable group, for example $Z^d$ or the hierarchical group. As type space we allow continua
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
Continuum Space Limit of the Genealogies of Interacting Fleming-Viot Processes on $\Z$
We study the evolution of genealogies of a population of individuals, whose type frequencies result in an interacting Fleming-Viot process on $\Z$. We construct and analyze the genealogical structure
