. . 1) mating is random,

. . 2) there is no selection,

. . 3) there is no mutation,

. . 4) there is no immigration nor emmigration, and

. . 5) the population is arbitrarily large (infinite)

. .. so the task becomes estimating which of the five

. . . has the most influence on the observed results.

. . 1) if mating is non-random,

. . . -is mathematically complex, or

. . . . requires simulation studies

. . 2) if there is selection,

. . . -multiply the Hardy-Weinburg values by fitness

. . . . {AA, Aa, aa} = {

. . 3) if there is mutation,

. . . -is mathematically complex, or

. . . . requires simulation studies

. . 4) if there is immigration or emmigration, and

. . . -is mathematically complex, or

. . . . requires simulation studies

. . 5) if the population is small (finite)

. . . -requires simulation studies
