We consider a model of the evolution of a population in the presence of epistatic lethal alleles. A model which describes the evolution of lethal and non-lethal alleles based on two-type branching…

### Individual-based models under various time-scales

- MathematicsESAIM: Proceedings and Surveys
- 2020

This article is a presentation of specific recent results describing scaling limits of individual-based models, which encompass the timescale typical of the life-expectancy of a single individual, the longer one wherein a population can be characterized through its demographic dynamics, and at least four interconnected ones wherein selection occurs.

### Scaling limits of a model for selection at two scales

- MathematicsNonlinearity
- 2017

A stochastic ball-and-urn process which models the dynamics of a population undergoing selection is considered, and it is proved the weak convergence of this process under two natural scalings.
