Abstract:

We construct an operad Phyl whose operations are the edge-labelled trees used in phylogenetics. This operad is the coproduct of Com, the operad for commutative semigroups, and $[0,\infty)$, the operad with unary operations corresponding to nonnegative real numbers, where composition is addition. We show that there is a homeomorphism between the space of n-ary operations of Phyl and $\T_n\times [0,\infty)^{n+1}$, where $\T_n$ is the space of metric n-trees introduced by Billera, Holmes and Vog...
