In 11/06 lecture notes, you said d = 1 if A completely dominant over a. Should it be the ratio d a = 1 here?


That's a mistake.   d = a means complete dominance of A over a.  (Or, as you say, d a = 1 is equivalent.) "Complete dominance" simply means that you cannot distinguish two copies vs. one copy of the dominant gene, which in turn implies that the genotypes with 1 or 2 copies should have the exact same phenotype (indistinguishable).  Sorry for the mistake.
