Cultural transmission of fitness in mathematical population genetics

Abstract:

Cultural transmission of fitness is the observed phenomenon in human populations that the number of a parent's siblings in uences the number of their own offspring. We propose an extension of the classical Wright-Fisher model for constant size haploid populations to allow for setting the magnitude of these `in uences' for each family size separately. This is achieved by assigning a reproductive weight to each individual in the parental generation depending on their family size.
