Your intuitions all seem correct. Coalescent simulation should be faster, because you don't track the entire population history over all t generations as you do in the forward simulation. Rather, as you work backwards in time you are tracking a smaller and small population. And with coalescent simulations it is probably very hard to incorporate the full ...


It is not complicated to make your own model of population growth You can make a model with any kind of function, it is not super hard. It just happen that logistic growth offer quite a good match to observations. You can have exponential growth, linear growth, quadratic growth, ... However, there are more possible behaviours behind those models than what ...
