Fixation times on random regular graphs

Even though fixation probabilities are the same on random regular graphs as on any other circulation, the corresponding fixation and absorption times can be vastly different. Because random regular graphs have a small diameter (every vertex can be reached with a few steps from every other one), fixation times remain comparable to those of the complete graph or unstructured populations.

For the simulations, the population size is \(N=81\) with \(k=4\) neighbours, which results in a total of \(120\) 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 and absorption times 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.
