Evolutionary Distributions

Evolutionary Distributions (ED) are reaction diffusion equations (RD) that mimic evolution by natural selection. The diffusion space is unique in that in a system of ED, each PDE occupies its own space. Numerical solutions of ED are difficult to obtain and are computationally intensive, so MSI resources are needed.
