This page contains various coalescent simulations that we have written. These simulations make heavy use of two libraries, libsequence and the GNU Scientific Library. You will need those packages to be installed on your system before attempting to compile the software on this page. Note that the GSL is not our project, so any questions about that should be directed to their mailing lists.
Please remember to cite the relevant papers listed below if you use any of these packages for your research.

This code simulates a sweep in a bottlenecked population, plus the ancestral population. See paper for details.
