9781581125993: The Missing Algorithm: Sex, Cooperation, and Prediction in Evolution

It has long been known that many processes of evolution can be modeled by assuming that a gene acts in ways to increase its total numbers of copy in a population. However, sometimes even this simple rule does not appear to work. This book argues that there is another, missing rule of gene spread, to give a more comprehensive model of the process.

From the Author:

This book will assist researchers seeking a fresh way to make existing algorithmic models work, for sex, cooperation, or evolution of the chromosome. Anybody discovering a few short genes playing vital roles in development, or suspecting that genes can act with foresight, will find a challenging explanation of what might be happening. Researchers in AI or complexity will find a suggested model in which genes compete along two axes of gene freedom, which should better correlate to how real life evolves.

For the general reader, here is a selfish gene model that also offers a logical explanation broader evolution, and even higher life and human behavior.
