    Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society
    Volume: 2332015
    MSC: Primary 60; 92;

    The goal of this work is to propose a finite population counterpart to Eigen's model, which incorporates stochastic effects. The author considers a Moran model describing the evolution of a population of size \(m\) of chromosomes of length \(\ell\) over an alphabet of cardinality \(\kappa\). The mutation probability per locus is \(q\). He deals only with the sharp peak landscape: the replication rate is \(\sigma>1\) for the master sequence and \(1\) for the other sequences. He studies the equilibrium distribution of the process in the regime where \[\ell\to +\infty,\qquad m\to +\infty,\qquad q\to 0,\] \[{\ell q} \to a\in ]0,+\infty[, \qquad\frac{m}{\ell}\to\alpha\in [0,+\infty].\]
