In this chapter we introduce briefly a number of more advanced topics, some of which are of current research interest. Some of the topics involve multidimensional parameters and are closely related to Probs. 5.4 and 6.4, which are concerned with detection of linkage in an intercross when the model permits both an additive and a dominance effect. (See also Prob. 4.3.) In these cases the new problems can be solved by conceptually straightforward extensions of results derived previously. In other cases the analysis becomes substantially more difficult and the results less conclusive, so the discussion here is at best an introduction.
