We will discuss the basic models of mathematical population genetics and see how to apply them to the study of the Lenski experiment. Furthermore, we will use these models to provide a parsimonious explanation of the deceleration of the relative fitness in the experiment. The techniques discussed can be used to attack other questions, such as, is it advantageous to be efficient? How does the lag...
