During the past few decades, a number of workers have considered mathematical formulations for the reproductive performance of a group of women, or for some aspect of this performance (see [1] to [20] and reviews in [21], [22], [23]). These formulations have been intended to help in the appraisal of observed data, to yield estimators of some of the biological determinants of reproduction, or to predict effects of defined contraceptive practices, sterilization programs, and so forth. To date… Expand
