Overview

Evolutionary Dynamics: Exploring the Interplay of Selection, Accident, Neutrality, and Function by James P. Crutchfield

The 14 chapters of this volume, which present an overview of new research in evolutionary dynamics, were first presented at a conference held in October 1998 at the Santa Fe Institute. The main divisions of the book are macroevolution; epochal evolution; population genetics, dynamics, and optimization; and evolution of cooperation. Individual topics include spectral landscape theory, external triggers in biological evolution, and evolutionary dynamics of asexual reproduction. Several of the contributors, like the editors, are affiliated with the Sante Fe Institute; others teach or work in physics, genetics, biology, computational neuroscience, and theoretical chemistry at universities and private institutions in the US, UK, Austria, Sweden, Australia, Israel, and Germany.
