Abstract

We consider the Moran process in a graph called the ``star'' and obtain the asymptotic expression for the fixation probability of a single mutant when the size of the graph is large. The expression obtained corrects the previously known expression announced in reference [E Lieberman, C Hauert, and MA Nowak. Evolutionary dynamics on graphs. Nature, 433(7023):312–316, 2005] and further studied in [M. Broom and J. Rychtar. An analysis of the fixation probability of a mutant on special classes of non-directed graphs. Proc. R. Soc. A-Math. Phys. Eng. Sci., 464(2098):2609–2627, 2008]. We also show that the star graph is an accelerator of evolution, if the graph is large enough.
