Models and Inference in Population Genetics IV: Fragmentation-coalescence and related models

University of Warwick, 15–18 April 2024

This workshop, held in association with CRiSMLink opens in a new window, is the fourth of series of earlier events held in 2012Link opens in a new window, 2015Link opens in a new window, and 2019Link opens in a new window. For this edition there will be an additional theme of fragmentation and coalescence, in association with the EPSRC project "Random fragmentation-coalescence processes out of equilibriumLink opens in a new window".

Stochastic coalescence and fragmentation models respectively describe how blocks of mass randomly join together and break apart over time according certain rules of random evolution. These models are important in fields including physical chemistry, ecology, and population genetics – where coalescence and fragmentation underlie widely studied genealogical processes. The aims of this workshop are to bring together researchers in probability and statistics working in all aspects of fragmentation, coalescence, genealogy, and genetic inference.

Please register your attendance using the link to the right-hand side before 22 March 2024. A full programme is available.
