We introduce a Markov chain model to study evolution of a continuous trait based on population genetics. It corresponds to individual-based model which includes frequency dependent selection caused by m-player game interactions and stochastic fluctuations due to random genetic drift and mutation. We prove that under a proper scaling limit as the population size increases the system converges to the solution of replicator–mutator equations. Our result establishes an affirmative mathematical base to the adaptive dynamics formulation employed in the theory of the mathematical biology.
