Quantitative Genetics by Brian W. Kennedy

These notes were part of the course 10-639 up until 1995 and given by Brian Kennedy.
Brian was very keen on showing the relationships between animal models in Henderson's
terminology with traditional quantitative genetics theory.  Thus, some of the notes
contain results from small research projects that Brian and his students pursued.
The notes are given here as part of history.  Parts of them have been used in the current
course notes for 10-639.
