  • Branching processes with biological applications 

    Wu, Xiaowei (2010)
    Branching processes play an important role in models of genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, ecology and evolutionary theory. This thesis explores three aspects of branching processes with biological applications. ...
  • Modeling neutral evolution using an in nite-allele Markov branching process 

    Wu, Xiaowei; Kimmel, Marek (2013)
    We consider an in nite-allele Markov branching process (IAMBP). Our main focus is the frequency spectrum of this process, i.e., the proportion of alleles having a given number of copies at a speci ed time point. We derive ...
