We refer to the index set of a stochastic matrix as its state space.
Let A be a stochastic matrix on the state space S and [C.

These data served as a basis for the population of the stochastic matrix of transition probabilities for bulk terminal behaviour (see matrix (6)).
Therefore, if we consider a fixed projection interval, the migratory processus for group a will be represented, during the time interval [t, t + 1] , by a regular stochastic matrix (i.
When a Markov chain has two or more disjoint meta-stable states we refer to it and its associated stochastic matrix as nearly uncoupled.
We remark: If one transforms the matrix A into a stochastic matrix in the obvious way, this would lead to a transition matrix of a Markov chain, whose states form three disconnected triangles.
