Extensions of Stable Population Theory

  • John Impagliazzo
Part of the Biomathematics book series (BIOMATHEMATICS, volume 13)


The developments and results of the previous chapters can be summarized by the following statement: Given a population

  1. (a)

    that is closed to migration,

  2. (b)

    that has time invariant age-specific birth rates, and

  3. (c)

    that has time invariant age-specific death rates.
