Efficient Algorithm for Computing the Ergodic Projector of Markov Multi-chains

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This paper extends the Markov uni-chain series expansion theory to Markov multi-chains, i.e., to Markov chains having multiple ergodic classes and possible transient states. The introduced series expansion approximation (SEA) provides a controllable approximation for Markov multichain ergodic projectors which may be a useful tool in large-scale network analysis. As we will illustrate by means of numerical examples, the new algorithm is faster than the power algorithm for large networks.
