This paper shows that differentiating the lifetimes of two phenotypes independently from their fertility can lead to a qualitative change in the equilibrium of a population: since survival and reproduction are distinct functional aspects of an organism, this observation contributes to extend the population-genetical characterisation of biological function. To support this statement a mathematical relation is derived to link the lifetime ratio T1/T2, which parameterizes the different survival… 
Reproduction and ferromagnetism
TLDR
A stochastic population model is presented that combines cooperative interactions of the type often used in physics with the process of reproduction and death familiar to biology and why such interlocking may be of interest to both fields is referred to.

The distribution of gene frequency at a single locus in a population of diploid individuals, with two sexes, subject to mutation, non-random mating and phenotypic selection, is obtained in the case
Population genetics of polymorphism and divergence.
TLDR
The approach provides a theoretical basis for the use of a 2 x 2 contingency table to compare fixed differences and polymorphic sites with silent sites and amino acid replacements and suggests the estimate that the number of amino acids in the enzyme that are susceptible to favorable mutation is in the range 2-23 at any one time.
Simultaneous inference of selection and population growth from patterns of variation in the human genome
TLDR
A model-based approach to developing predictions for patterns of polymorphism in the presence of both population size change and natural selection, which is more robust to assumptions regarding the true underlying demography than previous approaches to detecting and analyzing selection.
Molecular signatures of natural selection.
TLDR
This review provides a nonmathematical description of the issues involved in detecting selection from DNA sequences and SNP data and is intended for readers who are not familiar with population genetic theory.

THE NUMBER OF ALLELES THAT CAN BE MAINTAINED IN A FINITE POPULATION.
TLDR
This article proposes to examine some of the population consequences of a system of different isoalleles whose frequency in the population is determined by the mutation rate and by random drift, and considers three possibilities: A system of selectively neutral isoallels, a systemof mutually heterotic alleles, and a mixture of heterotic and harmful mutants.
Molecular analysis of an allozyme cline: alcohol dehydrogenase in Drosophila melanogaster on the east coast of North America.
TLDR
It is suggested that clinal selection may be acting epistatically on the Adh-F/S and delta 1 polymorphisms, and high levels of frequency-homogenizing gene flow.
Nucleotide polymorphism at the alcohol dehydrogenase locus of Drosophila melanogaster
