# A randomly started population model

#### A randomly started population model

- Event time: 11:30am
- Event date: 15th February 2017
- Speaker: Mr Michael Nicholson (School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
- Location: Room 2511, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB

### Event details

In population modelling, it may be the case that the population under consideration was initiated at a random time prior to the observation time. This random time could correspond to immigration to a spatial domain of interest, or mutational events from a different population. In this talk we'll solve a particular model where the population grows stochastically and the initiation time corresponds to mutational events from an exponentially growing population.
