• Bayesian Inference in Y-Linked Two-Sex Branching Processes with Mutations: ABC Approach

    1 month ago - By IEEE/ACM

    A Y-linked two-sex branching process with mutations and blind choice of males is a suitable model for analyzing the evolution of the number of carriers of a Y-linked allele and its mutations. Such a model considers a two-sex monogamous population in which each female chooses her partner from among the male population without caring about his type. In this work, we deal with the problem of estimating the main parameters of these models by developing Bayesian inference in a parametric framework. First, we consider as a sample scheme the observation of the total number of females and males up...
