Random deaths in a computational model for age-structured populations
In Nature, at least in the case of higher diploid organisms, whose populations are simulated by the Penna model, random deaths play no significant role, and computational models that want to capture the essence of evolution must take this into account.
Random deaths in a computational model for age-structured populations
This is made explicit by the statement by CFS “that a useful role for statistical complexity measures is to capture the structure – patterns, organization, regularities, symmetries – intrinsic to a process”.
