Abstract

We consider the  symbiotic branching model, which describes a spatial population consisting of two types in terms of a coupled system of stochastic PDEs. One particularly important special case is Kimura's stepping stone model in evolutionary biology. Our main focus is a description of the interfaces between the types in the large scale limit of the system. As a new tool we will introduce a moment duality, which also holds for the limiting model. This also has implications for a classification of entrance laws of annihilating Brownian motions.
