The main assumption of the AD model (and the present study) is an infinite population
By including the parameter [Alpha], the departure from Hardy-Weinberg proportions in the infinite population
, equation (6) or (7) can be made more general.
Briefly, these equations describe the exact dynamics of multilocus gamete frequencies with arbitrary linkage relationships in an infinite population
with discrete, nonoverlapping generations.
However, simulating an infinite population
of chromosomes, each having an infinite number of loci, presents unusual problems.
As above, assume an infinite population
of diploid hermaphrodites, organized into discrete patches, with the possibility of long-range migration of gametes between patches.
