The Fleming-Viot measure-valued diffusion is a Markov process describing the evolution of (allelic) types under mutation, selection and random reproduction. We enrich this process by genealogical relations of individuals so that the random type distribution as well as the genealogical distances in the population evolve stochastically. The state space of this tree-valued enrichment of the Fleming-Viot dynamics with mutation and selection (TFVMS) consists of marked ultrametric measure spaces…

Path-properties of the tree-valued Fleming-Viot process

We consider the tree-valued Fleming–Viot process, (Xt )t≥0 , with mutation and selection. This process models the stochastic evolution of the genealogies and (allelic) types under resampling,

An Ergodic Theorem for Fleming-Viot Models in Random Environments

The Fleming-Viot (FV) process is a measure-valued diffusion that models the evolution of type frequencies in a countable population which evolves under resampling (genetic drift), mutation, and

Duality for spatially interacting Fleming-Viot processes with mutation and selection

Consider a system X = ((x�(t)),� 2 N)t�0 of interacting Fleming-Viot diffusions with mutation and selection which is a strong Markov process with continuous paths and state space (P(I))N, where I is

Pathwise construction of tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes

In a random complete and separable metric space that we call the lookdown space, we encode the genealogical distances between all individuals ever alive in a lookdown model with simultaneous multiple

Continuum Space Limit of the Genealogies of Interacting Fleming-Viot Processes on $\Z$

We study the evolution of genealogies of a population of individuals, whose type frequencies result in an interacting Fleming-Viot process on $\Z$. We construct and analyze the genealogical structure

Tree-valued Feller diffusion

We consider the evolution of the genealogy of the population currently alive in a Feller branching diffusion model. In contrast to the approach via labeled trees in the continuum random tree world,

Invariance principles for tree-valued Cannings chains

We consider sequences of tree-valued Markov chains that describe evolving genealogies in Cannings models, and we show their convergence in distribution to tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes. Under

The historical Moran model

The limit theorem has two applications and it is obtained that the conditioned genealogical distance of two individuals given the types of the two individuals is distributed as a certain stopping time of a further functional of the backward process which is a new approach towards a proof that genealogyical distances are stochastically smaller under selection.

Measure representation of evolving genealogies.

We study evolving genealogies, i.e. processes that take values in the space of (marked) ultra-metric measure spaces and satisfy some sort of "consistency" condition. This condition is based on the

A representation for exchangeable coalescent trees and generalized tree-valued Fleming-Viot processes

We give a de Finetti type representation for exchangeable random coalescent trees (formally described as semi-ultrametrics) in terms of sampling iid sequences from marked metric measure spaces. We



Tree-valued resampling dynamics Martingale problems and applications

The measure-valued Fleming–Viot process is a diffusion which models the evolution of allele frequencies in a multi-type population. In the neutral setting the Kingman coalescent is known to generate

Genealogical processes for Fleming-Viot models with selection and recombination

Infinite population genetic models with general type space incorporating mutation, selection and recombination are considered. The Fleming– Viot measure-valued diffusion is represented in terms of a

Fleming-Viot processes in population genetics

Fleming and Viot [Indiana Univ. Math. J., 28 (1979), pp. 817–843] introduced a class of probability-measure-valued diffusion processes that has attracted the interest of both pure and applied

Stochastic flows associated to coalescent processes. III. Limit theorems

We prove several limit theorems that relate coalescent processes to continuous-state branching processes. Some of these theorems are stated in terms of the so-called generalized Fleming-Viot

Abstract. We study a class of stochastic flows connected to the coalescent processes that have been studied recently by Möhle, Pitman, Sagitov and Schweinsberg in connection with asymptotic models
