- Together these three loci seem to fit the circumstances under which separate estimates of both mutation scalars and inheritance scalars can be obtained.
- These types are what you'd expect: scalars hold numerical values or strings, columns hold lists of numbers, grids hold two-dimensional matrices and images hold pixels.
- With multiple loci, each locus has a mutation rate scalar parameter such that the product of all mutation rate scalars is equal to 1.
