## Fixation probabilities on the rectangular lattice

Since the rectangular lattice is a circulation, the fixation probability of a mutant has to be the same irrespective of its initial location and must be identical to the one of the original Moran process in unstructured populations.

For the simulations, the population size is \(N=9\times9=81\) and arranged on a rectangular lattice with periodic boundary conditions such that each vertex has four neighbours to the north, east, south and west (von Neumann neighbourhood). The resulting graph has a total of \(162\) links. The fitness of residents is set to \(1\) and that of mutants to \(2\). Thus, a single mutant has approximately a \(50\%\) chance to take over the population. For reference, the analytical fixation probabilities of the original Moran process are indicated by a dark red line.

## Game parameters

The list below describes only the few parameters related to the evolutionary dynamics of residents and mutants with fixed fitness (constant selection). Numerous other parameters are available to set population structures or update rules on the player as well as population level.

`--resident <r>`- fitness of resident
`r`. `--mutant <m>`- fitness of mutant
`m`. `--initfreqs <m:r>`- initial frequencies of residents
`r`and mutants`m`. Frequencies that do not add up to 100% are scaled accordingly. If either frequency is zero, the population is initialized to a homogenous state with just a single, randomly placed individual of the opposite type.
