Recent advances in predictions of rates of response to selection and rates of inbreeding in populations under selection are reviewed. Under the assumptions of the infinitesimal model, discrete generations, truncation selection, equal family sizes and truncation selection these predictions are shown to agree well with results obtained in simulation studies for populations. Particular problems associated with very small populations and relaxation of some of the assumptions are discussed
