Most of those notes have been offered as a part of a two-quarter path on theoretical inhabitants genetics on the college of Chicago. just about all the scholars have been both undergraduates in arithmetic or graduate scholars within the organic sciences. the one necessities have been calculus and matrices. As is finished in those notes, organic heritage and extra mathematical recommendations have been coated after they have been required. i've got incorporated the suitable difficulties assigned within the path. My goal in those notes is to formulate some of the types really in most cases, making the organic assumptions fairly particular, and to accomplish the analyses rather carefully. i'm hoping the alternative and therapy of issues will permit the reader to appreciate and evaluation special analyses of particular versions and functions within the literature. No test has been made to check the literature or to assign credits. many of the references are to papers without delay germane to the topics and ways lined the following. Frequency of reference isn't meant to mirror proportionate contribution. i'm very thankful to Professor James F. Crow for worthwhile reviews and to Mrs. Adelaide Jaffe for her very good typing. I thank the nationwide technology origin for its aid (Grant No. DEB76-01550).
