That you would even ask a question like this suggests that you have a
really minimnal understanding of what evolution is or has been. You want
a mathematical theory, for processes that are utterly opportunistic.
Give us a break with the differential equations bit, and sit down and
read a good text on evolutionary biology.. Doug Futuyama comes to mind.
Anyway, thanks for the exposure to truly primitive thought...
