Autocatalytic second order reactions are the basis of selection processes.

The autocatalytic step is formally equivalent to replication or reproduction.

Selection equation: [Ii] = xi 0 , fi> 0

Mean fitness or dilution flux,(t), is a non-decreasingfunction of time,

Solutions are obtained by integrating factor transformation

Changes in RNA sequences originate from replication errors called mutations.

Mutations occur uncorrelated to their consequences in the selection process and are, therefore, commonly characterized as random elements of evolution.
