"Evolutionary dynamics" is the study of the fundamental mathematical principles that guide evolution. The Program for Evolutionary Dynamics (PED) at Harvard University was established in 2003 and is dedicated to research and teaching.
Martin Nowak, Professor of Mathematics and of Biology at Harvard University, is the director of this program. May Huang is the Chief Administrative Officer.
Our current research topics include: evolution of cooperation, cancer, viruses, evolutionary game/graph/set theory, prelife, protocells, eusociality, evolution of construction, population structure, evolution of language, experimental games, and evolutionary economics.
Our ambitious goals include curing the world of cancer, infectious disease, selfishness, and inclusive fitness theory. Our work is about understanding the past, managing the present, and helping to build the future.
