Analyzing Markov Chains using Kronecker Products: Theory and by Tugrul Dayar

By Tugrul Dayar

Kronecker items are used to outline the underlying Markov chain (MC) in a number of modeling formalisms, together with compositional Markovian types, hierarchical Markovian types, and stochastic method algebras. the inducement at the back of utilizing a Kronecker established illustration instead of a flat one is to relieve the garage standards linked to the MC. With this procedure, platforms which are an order of significance higher might be analyzed at the similar platform. The advancements within the answer of such MCs are reviewed from an algebraic standpoint and attainable parts for additional examine are indicated with an emphasis on preprocessing utilizing reordering, grouping, and lumping and numerical research utilizing block iterative, preconditioned projection, multilevel, decompositional, and matrix analytic tools. Case stories from closed queueing networks and stochastic chemical kinetics are supplied to inspire decompositional and matrix analytic equipment, respectively.
