Life: Fearfully and Wonderfully Fine-Tuned
A new ID the Future episode spotlights the incredible fine-tuning of life. Robert J. Marks hosts Stockholm University professor of mathematical statistics Ola Hössjer and University of Miami population geneticist Daniel Díaz. The three discuss strategies for extending the concept of fine-tuning to biological systems, and along the way touch on population genetics, entropy, and probability theory.
