 Publisher's Summary
 The authors investigate a continuous time, probability measurevalued dynamical system that describes the process of mutationselection balance in a context where the population is infinite, there may be infinitely many loci, and there are weak assumptions on selective costs. Their model arises when they incorporate very general recombination mechanisms into an earlier model of mutation and selection presented by Steinsaltz, Evans and Wachter in 2005 and take the relative strength of mutation and selection to be sufficiently small. The resulting dynamical system is a flow of measures on the space of loci. Each such measure is the intensity measure of a Poisson random measure on the space of loci: the points of a realisation of the random measure record the set of loci at which the genotype of a uniformly chosen individual differs from a reference wild type due to an accumulation of ancestral mutations. The authors' motivation for working in such a general setting is to provide a basis for understanding mutationdriven changes in agespecific demographic schedules that arise from the complex interaction of many genes, and hence to develop a framework for understanding the evolution of aging.
