Mike Taylor's answer is well-researched and inspired the following thought experiment that might help you. Imagine a predator of the cicada which takes several years to reach maturity(say, five). The population of this predator is distributed evenly across all the different stages of its life cycle, at least at first. One year there is a cicada eruption ...

I have interpreted "synchronizing their own generations to divisors..." to mean synchronizing the length of the life cycle. I am happy to hear of another interpretation. First, the overall goal of Goles et al. (2001) does not seem to test hypotheses related to the ...

These equations describe how the haplotype frequencies will change over time due to a combination of recombination and natural selection. Before I proceed, I need to change your four $\delta X_i$ formulas above. Lewontin and Kojima (1960) writes the equations as: $$\Delta X_i = \frac{X_i(w_i - \bar w) \pm Drw_{14}}{\bar w}$$ where the minus sign is used ...

If you're interested in learning about the mathematics of population genetics, Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory by Alan Templeton is an absolutely amazing resource. If you check out the index, here are entries under population structure: assortative mating, admixture, linkage disequilibrium, coarse-grained spatial heterogeneity, gene flow, ...
