The SMC' is a highly accurate approximation to the ancestral recombination graph.


Two sequentially Markov coalescent models (SMC and SMC') are available as tractable approximations to the ancestral recombination graph (ARG). We present a Markov process describing coalescence at two fixed points along a pair of sequences evolving under the SMC'. Using our Markov process, we derive a number of new quantities related to the pairwise SMC… (More)
