Abstract

A model illustrating Darwin's divergence principle is presented. It shows how competition for resources can explain evolutionary branching. It is based on an assumption of degenerate competition. Mathematically, it is a partial differential equation with an integral term, and it describes a new mechanism of self-organization.
