Further Considerations

  • Warren J. Ewens
Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 27)


In line with the aims of this book, the material given in preceding chapters has focused on purely mathematical considerations. However many topics in population genetics generally require an extensive verbal discussion with perhaps a minimum of mathematical treatment. Some of these topics are discussed in this chapter. Some mathematical material not naturally addressed in previous chapters is also taken up here. The content of this chapter may be viewed as an introduction to a more complete discussion, in Volume II, of the topics considered here.
