On the Genealogy of Populations: Trees, Branches and Offsprings

  title={On the Genealogy of Populations: Trees, Branches and Offsprings},
  author={Maurizio Serva},
We consider a neutral haploid population whose generations are not overlapping and whose size is large and constantly of N individuals. Any generation is replaced by a new one and any individual has a single parent. We do not choose the stochastic rule which assigns the number of offsprings to any individual since results do not depend on the details of the dynamics, and, as a consequence, the model is parameter free. The genealogical tree is very complex, and distances between individuals… CONTINUE READING
