Angela you are an angel,
Was looking or some time to understand what all these concepts mean. Thank you so much.

If you are aware of any other method description, please send some links.

Some literature to help in understanding D-Stats would also be very helpful, if it's not too much to ask.

Here in a paper titled "Ancient Admixture in Human History", Nick Patterson explains a lot of the statistical tools used in population genetics, including d stats as well as f stats.

See:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3522152/

It builds on their prior paper from 2011, Durand et al
https://academic.oup.com/mbe/article/28/8/2239/1052492/Testing-for-Ancient-Admixture-between-Closely

I have published the following before, but I see people continuing to do this: How Not to Interpret Admixture Analysis:

http://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads/31931-Why-Admixture-Calculators-Have-To-Be-Interpreted-Cautiously

The above includes a primer by Coop and Mathiesen. It's excellent.

This is excellent as it takes on the problems with dating.

Graham Coop teaches a graduate course in population genetics. This is a link to the notes from his class thanks to Razib Khan:
