Seminar: Physics of Evolution – Übersicht

  • Übersicht

As minimal conditions for the emergence of an evolutionary dynamics, the three processes replication, mutation, and selection are needed. How can such an evolutionary dynamics emerge spontaneously with molecules under non-equilibrium conditions? Besides this main interest, we will also focus on game theoretical topics and related biophysical questions.
