It has been increasingly recognized that natural populations exhibit broad offspring number distributions, either because offspring numbers are strongly variable (e.g. marine organisms) or because range expansion processes generate jackpot events. In this talk, I will review the basic concepts of theoretical population genetics and then discuss how broad offspring number distributions affect the evolutionary dynamics.
