I believe I'm scheduled to talk this Friday the 13th at the popgen lunch.
The topic is using heavy tailed (and specifically Cauchy) distributions for
modeling quantitative traits: how the Cauchy distribution lets us sneak
blending inheritance past the variance decay effect, how population
distributions are related to heritability for such traits, and a hand-waving
argument for how we could evolve heavy tailed traits in the first place.
Earlier versions of the slides and paper respectively:
Thank you, and knowing that the subject is, to unfairly quote
Elizabeth, "esoteric," please be gentle,
