gene copies have the probability ^^ of finding their e

MRCA in the previous generation. If we call this the probability of coalescence, PC, then for a diploid population:

For example, with k = 2 lineages i = 1 in equation 3.77 gives an expected total branch length of two. This result makes sense because two lineages are expected to coalesce in 2Ne generations or one time unit on the continuous time scale. Multiplying this expected time to coalescence by two for the two independent lineage branches gives a total branch length
