Simulation files as used in paper

README.TXT FOR SIMULATION FILES: These files are the source code for the one-dimensional and two-dimensional population simulations used in the Hartfield et al 2012 paper "The maintenance of obligate sex in finite, structured populations subject to recurrent beneficial and deleterious mutation". Simulations are written in C and need to be compiled prior to execution. See blurb at start of each program for description and how to execute. Please also note that simulations use routines that are part of the GNU Scientific Library (GSL). Since GSL is distributed under the GNU General Public License(, you must download it separately from these files. Note that we have also uploaded a Mathematica file, outlining the study into obtaining confidence intervals, as described in the manuscript. Comments should be sent to Matthew Hartfield (
