  • For each value of ρ/θ, the first line corresponds to parameter values used to obtain an initial 103 samples from the joint posterior distribution of bottleneck parameters. Where present, the second line corresponds to parameter values used to obtain a further 104 samples. The three values listed under ϵ refer to the tolerance used for the summaries of diversity (Embedded Image), the number of haplotypes (K), and the site frequency spectrum (H), respectively. See text for details about model parameters and summary statistics.
