Hardy-Weinberg law
noun Etymology: G. H. Hardy died 1947 English mathematician and W. Weinberg died 1937 German physician Date: 1950 a fundamental principle of population genetics: population gene frequencies and genotype frequencies remain constant from generation to generation if mating is random and if mutation, selection, immigration, and emigration do not occur — called also Hardy-Weinberg principle
