We present an alternative model for multifactorial inheritance. By changing the way the malformation (and selection) is determined from the genetic information, we arrive at a model that can be properly handled in the mathematical sense. This includes the proof of population convergence and computation of conditional malformation probabilities in a closed form. We also present a comparison to similar models and results of fitting our model to Hungarian data.
