Mutations and Selection in Evolutionary Processes

  • Werner Ebeling
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 270)

Abstract

The competition between species in a biological system is analyzed in terms of linear and nonlinear models. The significance of stochastic phenomena in evolutionary processes is emphasized. A qualitative model of evolution as a hopping process on the eigenvalue ladder is developed.
