Beyond Matrix Models

For general structured population models a procedure similar to the last described one may be used, with M(0) any normalized h-state distribution, from which the h-state distribution L(t + 1) and the total population growth over one time step, w(t) , are calculated by some numerical technique appropriate for that model. For constant environments the last step can be simplified to p = ln(limtw(t))

The section on constant environments treats a number of half-way analytical procedures pertaining to restricted model classes.
