Age-ordered distributions for population genetics models


, : Age-ordered distributions for population genetics models. Dissertation Abstracts International B, Sciences and Engineering 49(7): 2470

The aims of the study were to explain the combinatorial structure of sampling formulae that arise in the study of neutral mutations in population genetics, to show how age ordering of alleles arises naturally, and to demonstrate that the age-ordered sampling formula characterises the population in age order, just as the Ewens sampling formula characterises the population when allelic types are labelled by order statistics.

The methods are used to examine the question of whether al...
