Evolutionary Distributions

This researcher has developed a theory of capturing evolutions by natural selection in a system of parabolic partial differential equations. The evolutionary distributions have a particular structure in that phenotypes mutate in adaptive space, and for each evolutionary distribution, the adaptive spaces are completed isolated. These spaces interact through the reaction term in the reaction-diffusion evolutionary distribution system.
