An Exactly Solved Model for Mutation, Recombination and Selection
It is well known that rather general mutation-recombination models can be solved algorithmically (though not in closed form) by means of Haldane linearization. The price to be paid is that one has to work with a multiple tensor product of the state space one started from. Here, we present a relevant subclass of such models, in continuous time, with independent mutation events at the sites, and crossover events between them. It admits a closed solution of the corresponding differential equation on the basis of the original state space, and also closed expressions for the linkage disequilibria, derived by means of M\"obius inversion. As an extra benefit, the approach can be extended to a model with selection of additive type across sites. We also derive a necessary and sufficient criterion for the mean fitness to be a Lyapunov function and determine the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions.

Keywords:population genetics, recombination, nonlinear $\ODE$s, measure-valued dynamical systems, Möbius inversion

A Stochastic Calculus Approach for the Brownian Snake
We study the ``Brownian snake'' introduced by Le Gall, and also studied by Dynkin, Kuznetsov, Watanabe. We prove that It\^o's formula holds for a wide class of functionals. As a consequence, we give a new proof of the connections between the Brownian snake and super-Brownian motion. We also give a new definition of the Brownian snake as the solution of a well-posed martingale problem. Finally, we construct a modified Brownian snake whose lifetime is driven by a path-dependent stochastic equation. This process gives a representation of some super-processes.

Spatial branching processes and subordination
We present a subordination theory for spatial branching processes. This theory is developed in three different settings, first for branching Markov processes, then for superprocesses and finally for the path-valued process called the {\it Brownian snake}. As a common feature of these three situations, subordination can be used to generate new branching mechanisms. As an application, we investigate the compact support property for superprocesses with a general branching mechanism.
