I am a mathematician, and a novice physicist. Please let me join the project.

First of all, welcome.
I think your presentation is a bit brief, could you explain us how your mathematics and phisics knowledge would help in the development?
Obviously for a phisics engine your skills are needed, but what more? (I am not complaining about your skills, simply i am curious)

I could help with mathematical models of population change (size of population and evolution) and models of weather patterns.

I could do some work with a physics engine.

I could eventually learn programing language and do some programing.

As a mathematician I'd be interested in hearing your opinion about this thread about population dynamics: Could you read throught it and perhaps comment here?

Haha, very brief and to the point. Welcome to the team {~}!

(Is there something easier we can call you?) Population dynamics is very important to our game, so if you could get involved in it that would help us a lot. Also, with experience in math and physics, coding would help you a lot too!

Look at how far we've come when people thought we'd get nowhere. Imagine how far we can go if we try to get somewhere.

I thought that a probability based mutation rate/acceptance would fix some problems (no genetic drift, prey mutates after predator prey-preference changes, etc.)

mutations are more likely for less fit species
mutations that increase to fitness more are more likely
