...Young J. Kim; Zenas M. Sykes Abstract We discuss two special cases of population dynamics with changing vital rates subject to the constraint NRR = I and consider the specifics of ergodicity and stationarity. By restricting the number of age groups to two, we can make explicit the way weak...

... matrices are given. From these, relative age distribution and reproductive values to any desired accuracy are obtained as functions of the vital rates. Thus, the results given in this paper are stronger than any existing weak ergodic theorems. 9 1 2011 © Population Association of America 1985...

... the con- sequences of the weak ergodic theorem of Lopez (1961). This states that the age structure of a population subjected to changing vital rates depends only on the recent history of those rates and not on the long past (historical) age structure of the population. There has been consider- able recent...

... island. The point is that after 100years, one cannot find any evidence that the initial population had been completely distorted in both its age and sex compo- sition. This is a concrete demonstration of the weak ergodicity theorem (Lopes, 1961) or, in simpler terms, of the fact that a population...
