The Equilibrium and Transient Behavior of Mutation and Recombination

  title={The Equilibrium and Transient Behavior of Mutation and Recombination},
  author={William M. Spears},
This paper investigates the limiting distributions for mutation and recombination. The paper shows a tight link between standard schema theories of recombination and the speed at which recombination operators drive a population to equilibrium. A similar analysis is performed for mutation. Finally the paper characterizes how a population undergoing recombination and mutation evolves.
