The investigation of the model dynamics of the Mendelian one-locus poly-allelic population under the exponential density-dependent natural selection

2004, issue 2, Ñ. 250–262

The generalization of the model of one-locus diploid population under the exponential density-dependent natural selection for poly-allelic population is studied in this paper. All monomorphic stationary points of polymorphic model and their stable conditions have been found. A number of statements determining dependence between the positional relationship of genotypes resort parameters and a population number in each of polymorphic stationary points have been proved. In addition, the dependence between the positional relationship of genotypes resort parameters and a stability of polymorphic stationary points has been shown analytically.
