The function of those notes is to offer a slightly whole presentation of the mathematical thought of algebras in genetics and to debate intimately many functions to concrete genetic occasions. traditionally, the topic has its starting place in different papers of Etherington in 1939- 1941. primary contributions were given by way of Schafer, Gonshor, Holgate, Reiers¢l, Heuch, and Abraham. for the time being there exist approximately 40 papers during this box, one survey article through Monique Bertrand from 1966 in keeping with 4 papers of Etherington, a paper through Schafer and Gonshor's first paper. additionally Ballonoff within the 3rd component of his booklet "Genetics and Social constitution" has integrated 4 papers by means of Etherington and Reiers¢l's paper. it appears a whole evaluation, in par ticular one comprising more moderen effects was once missing, and it was once tricky for college kids to go into this box of analysis. i began to jot down those notes in spring 1978. a primary german model was once complete on the finish of that 12 months. extra revision and translation required one other 12 months. i'm hoping that the notes of their current kingdom offer an affordable assessment and they will facilitate entry to this box. i'm specially thankful to Professor okay. -P. Hadeler and Professor P. Holgate for analyzing the manuscript and giving crucial reviews to all types of the textual content. i'm additionally very thankful to Dr. I. Heuch for plenty of discussions in the course of and after his remain in TUbingen. I desire to thank Dr. V. M.
