As an illustration, consider the genotype -£g at generation t. ) \q, |p}> Q = 1 — Pi respectively. Under self-fertilization with no selection, this gives the frequencies of the above ten genotypes at generation t + 1 as: AB AB 1 jP Ab Ab 9 aB aB ab ab AB Ab AB aB Ab ab aB ab AB ab aB Ab 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 -A1 -q -p -pq 1 -pq 1 -pq 1 -pq 1 2 -p 12 -q . The average fitness is T P 2 ( Z I + x2) + ^q2{xi + y2) + ^Q2(yi + x2) + J P 2 G / I + 2/2) + ^ ( z i + 1) + 2 ^ ( 1 + x2) + ^pq(l + 2/2) + ^ ( l + 2/i) 1 9 1 C5 9 + V+V =7Hence the frequencies of the ten genotypes at generation t + 1 under selection are given by: AB AB Ab Ab aB aB —p2(xi + x2) —q2(xi + y2) C5 C5 —q2(yi + x2) C5 Ab ab AB aB ab ab —2pq(l + x2) -2pq(l C5 C5 aB ab + y2) -2pq(l C5 + yx) 1 C5 J AB Ab °2(yi + 2/2) —2pq(xi C5 AB ab aB Ab 4 2 —P & C5 This gives the elements of the last row of P above.

In this section we will illustrate the basic structure and decomposition of these chains. For simplicity of illustration, we will restrict ourselves to homogeneous Markov chains, unless otherwise stated, although many results also hold in non-homogeneous chains.
