Some stochastic theory is developed for monoecious populations of size N in which there are probabilities beta and 1 - beta of reproduction by selfing and by random mating. It is assumed that betaâ€¦ (More)

Sickness absenteeism, of hospital employees particularly, is a problem of concern due to its negative economic and morale impacts. The aim of the first stage of the study was to identify according toâ€¦ (More)

Cytoplasmic genes of crop species exhibit non-Mendelian inheritance and affect quantitative traits such as biomass and grain yield. Photosynthesis and respiration are physiological processesâ€¦ (More)

Consider a large random mating monoecious diploid population that has N individuals in each generation. Let us assume that at time 0 a random sample of n<<N copies of a gene are taken from thisâ€¦ (More)

Consider a random mating population that has N(m) males and N(f) females in each generation. Let us assume that at time 0 a random sample of n copies of a gene is taken from this population. Then,â€¦ (More)

It was shown in a previous paper that if generations are discrete, then the effective population size of a large population can be derived from the theory of multitype branching processes. It turnsâ€¦ (More)

Let a population have the same age distribution and age-specific sex ratios at times 0, 1, 2,..., and let M, F, and L, respectively, be the numbers of males and females in the youngest age group andâ€¦ (More)

Consider a monoecious diploid population with nonoverlapping generations, whose size varies with time according to an irreducible, aperiodic Markov chain with states x1N, . . . , xKN , where K N . Itâ€¦ (More)
