The general recombination equation in continuous time and its solution

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The process of recombination in population genetics, in its deterministic limit, leads to a nonlinear ODE in the Banach space of finite measures on a locally compact product space. It has an embedding into a larger family of nonlinear ODEs that permits a systematic analysis with lattice-theoretic methods for general partitions of finite sets. We discuss this type of system, reduce it to an equivalent finite-dimensional nonlinear problem, and establish a connection with an ancestral partitioning process, backward in time. We solve the finite-dimensional problem recursively for generic sets of parameters and briefly discuss the singular cases, and how to extend the solution to this situation.
