I would like to present the bisexual Galton-Watson branching process. The word "bisexual" indicates that we will be considering a population of two sexes--which will be designated as the usual male and female. Here is a brief overview of what I would like to cover.

  1. The bisexual process motivated: why is it needed?
  2. The standard Galton-Watson branching process.
  3. The state of affairs regarding two-sex models.
  4. The nuts and bolts of the bisexual Galton-Watson branching process (parameters defined and how it works).
  5. A review of published bisexual results to date.
  6. What is to come?
