David Sirl discussing the contents
of his poster with another delegate at Stochastic Processes and their
Applications, Paris, July 2006


MASCOS members Joshua Ross and David Sirl exchange what is believed to be a traditional French greeting at Stochastic Processes and their Applications, Paris, July 2006.


The probability
of fixation for a duplicate gene relative to that of a neutral variant.
Each gene copy is subject to nonfunctionalization and the duplicate
is subject to an additional doublenonfunctionalizing mutation.

Quasistationary
distribution for a metapopulation network of 11 patches, 8 of which are
susceptible to disturbances and 3 of which are protected from these
disturbances. The horizontal and vertical axes represent the number of
suitable and occupied, respectively, susceptible patches.

Expected time to
extinction for a metapopulation network of 11 patches, 8 of which are
susceptible to disturbances and 3 of which are protected from these
disturbances. The horizontal and vertical axes represent the number of
suitable and occupied, respectively, susceptible patches.

A representation
of the optimal matrix for the sequential generation of SelfAvoiding
Random Walks on the twodimensional lattice, of length 11. It is
optimal in a minimum crossentropy sense to the uniform sampling
density over all SAWs of length 11, given the sequential generation
method.
