Mathematical theories of populations have appeared both implicitly and explicitly in many important studies of populations, human populations as well as populations of animals, cells, and viruses. They provide a systematic way for studying a population's underlying structure.

A basic model in population age structure is studied and then applied, extended, and modified to several population phenomena, such as stable age distributions, self-limiting effects, and two-sex populations. Population genetics are studied with special attention to derivation and analysis of a model for a one-locus, two-allele trait in a large randomly mating population. The dynamics of contagious phenomena in a population are studied in the context of epidemic diseases.

The Equations of Population Dynamics: Age Dependent Population Growth; Analysis of the Birth Rate; A Model of a Self-Limiting Population; A Two-sex Model; Deterministic Models in Genetics: A Brief Introduction to Mendelian Genetics; The One-Locus, two-allele Model; Age Dependent Population Genetics. Propagation of a Gene in a Spatially Distributed Population; Theories of Epidemics: General Theory of Contagious Phenomena; Qualitative Behavior of Deterministic Epidemics.
