In this paper we consider two continuous-mass population models as analogues of logistic branching random walks, one is supported on a finite trait space and the other one is supported on an infinite trait space. For the first model with nearest-neighbor competition and migration, we justify a well-described evolutionary path to the short-term equilibrium on a slow migration time scale. For the second one with an additional evolutionary mechanism-mutation, a jump process-trait substitution tree…

Multi-time scales in adaptive dynamics: microscopic interpretation of a trait substitution tree model
TLDR
Light is shed to illustrate sexual reproduction in a diploid population on the genetic level and a fitness-structured population model with competition and migration between nearest neighbors under a combination of large population and rare migration limits.
From adaptive dynamics to adaptive walks.
TLDR
This work considers an asexually reproducing population on a finite type space whose evolution is driven by exponential birth, death and competition rates, as well as the possibility of mutation at a birth event, and modelled as a measure-valued Markov process.
Crossing a fitness valley as a metastable transition in a stochastic population model
TLDR
This work focuses on the limit of large population and rare mutations at several speeds, and chooses parameters such that the induced fitness landscape exhibits a valley: mutant individuals with negative fitness have to be created in order for the population to reach a trait with positive fitness.

I discuss the so-called stochastic individual based model of adaptive dynamics and in particular how different scaling limits can be obtained by taking limits of large populations, small mutation
Macroscopic behavior of heterogenous populations with fast random life histories
In this paper, we consider the large population limit of an age and characteristic-structured stochastic population model evolving according to individual birth, death and fast characteristics
A stochastic model for immunotherapy of cancer
TLDR
The aim is to show that the interplay of genetic mutations and phenotypic switches on different timescales as well as the occurrence of metastability phenomena raise new mathematical challenges and to understand the resistance of tumours to therapeutic approaches and may have non-trivial consequences on tumour treatment protocols.
Reaction Networks and Population Dynamics Organised
Reaction systems and population dynamics constitute two highly developed areas of research that build on well-defined model classes, both in terms of dynamical systems and stochastic processes.
Innovation, competition, diversification: a tree form dynamics of long-term development
This paper provides an individual-based foundation for the logistic and Lotka-Volterra equations which describe the diffusion of an innovation or the competition between old and new alternatives,

Trait Substitution Sequence process and Canonical Equation for age-structured populations
TLDR
A continuous time, discrete individual-centered population process is started that generalizes the Trait Substitution Sequence process describing Adaptive Dynamics for populations without age structure and derives an age-dependent ordinary differential equation that extends the Canonical Equation.
Polymorphic evolution sequence and evolutionary branching
TLDR
It is proved that under a good combination of these two scales, the population process is approximated in the long time scale of mutations by a Markov pure jump process describing the successive trait equilibria of the population.
Multiscale analysis: Fisher-Wright diffusions with rare mutations and selection, logistic branching system
We study two types of stochastic processes, first a mean-field spatial system of interacting Fisher–Wright diffusions with an inferior and an advantageous type with rare mutation (inferior to
Evolution of discrete populations and the canonical diffusion of adaptive dynamics
TLDR
Here, in order to include the effect of stochasticity (genetic drift), self-regulated randomly fluctuating populations subject to mutation are considered, so that the number of coexisting types may fluctuate.
The dynamical theory of coevolution: a derivation from stochastic ecological processes
TLDR
It is shown that the coevolutionary dynamic can be envisaged as a directed random walk in the community's trait space and a quantitative description of this stochastic process in terms of a master equation is derived.
Adaptive Dynamics: A Geometrical Study of the Consequences of Nearly Faithful Reproduction
We set out to explore a class of stochastic processes called, 'adaptive dynamics', which supposedly capture some of the essentials of the long-term biological evolution. These processes have a strong
Ergodic behavior of locally regulated branching populations
For a class of processes modeling the evolution of a spatially structured population with migration and a logistic local regulation of the reproduction dynamics we show convergence towards an upper

TLDR
This work presents a new approach to modeling spatial interactions by deriving approximations for the time evolution of the moments of ensembles of distributions of organisms, and finds that the mean-covariance model provides a useful and analytically tractable approximation to the stochastic spatial model.
