Weinberg, Wilhelm

German physician and mathematician; in 1908, independently derived the principle known today as the Hardy-Weinberg law. In subsequent papers, Weinberg made significant contributions to equilibrium, random mating, methods of partitioning genetic and environmental variance (in advance of R. A. Fisher), ascertainment bias, and ratios of expected twin births.
