Many theoretical models of evolution assume that all competing individuals experience the same environment. Here, we consider the more realistic scenario of evolution a finite population in any heterogeneous environment. We introduce a novel mathematical formalism to approach any form of spatial fitness heterogeneity and calculate exact results for the fixation probability.
