Fearnhead, Paul (2006) Perfect Simulation From Nonneutral Population Genetic Models: Variable Population Size and Population Subdivision. Genetics, 174. pp. 1397-1406.
We show how the idea of monotone coupling from the past can produce simple algorithms for simulating samples at a nonneutral locus under a range of demographic models. We specifically consider a biallelic locus and either a general variable population size mode or a general migration model for population subdivision. We investigate the effect of demography on the efficacy of selection and the effect of selection on genetic divergence between populations.
