Technicalities and Generalizations
This chapter is largely technical in nature. Its aim in part is to consider in more detail some of the theoretical points raised in Chapter 1, and in part to put these in a setting that allows a more detailed and up-to-date discussion of them in later chapters. A second aim is to introduce some further techniques not discussed in Chapter 1. Some rather straightforward generalizations of the theory are also made. Finally, the statement of the Fundamental Theorem of Natural Selection for one gene locus will be given and proved.
