In recent papers the authors introduce, study and apply a variant of the Eggenberger–Pólya urn, called the “rescaled” Pólya urn, which, for a suitable choice of the model parameters, exhibits a reinforcement mechanism mainly based on the last observations, a random persistent fluctuation of the predictive mean and the almost sure convergence of the empirical mean to a deterministic limit. In this work, motivated by some empirical evidence, we show that the multidimensional Wright–Fisher diffusion with mutation can be obtained as a suitable limit of the predictive means associated to a family of rescaled Pólya urns.
