Steady-state Analysis and The Time-inhomogeneous Markov Chain
for every state j and every time n then is an equilibrium distribution of the Markov chain. Such can occur in Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods in situations where a number of different transition matrices are used, because each is efficient for a particular kind of mixing, but each matrix respects a shared equilibrium distribution.
Famous quotes containing the words chain and/or analysis:
“It is the future that creates his present.
All is an interminable chain of longing.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“Ask anyone committed to Marxist analysis how many angels on the head of a pin, and you will be asked in return to never mind the angels, tell me who controls the production of pins.”
