Relationship between Ploidy, Alleles and Genotypes

Plants species exhibit a diverse number of ploidy, for example, the strawberry is an octoploid and the pear is a triploid.
Copy number variations in somatic variant calling also leads to variable ploidy to consider when genotyping a locus.
While there are explicit functions that could be googled for handling haploid and diploid cases. It seems difficult to find the closed forms for the general case.
