Markov chains are mathematical systems that hop from one "state" (a situation or set of values) to another. For example, if you made a Markov chain model of a baby's behavior, you might include "playing," "eating", "sleeping," and "crying" as stat. We will start with finite state Markov chains such as random walk on finite graphs. We will learn about fast mixing of markov chains and applications in algorithms and common card games. Finally we will learn some infinite state processes and tools to study them. Book: Levin, Peres, Markov chains and mixing times. Mathematical aspects of mixing times in Markov Chains. Foundations and Trends in Theoretical Computer Science, 1(3) Goel, S., Montenegro, R.R., Tetali, P. (). Mixing time bounds via the spectral profile. Electronic Journal of Probability, 11 Montenegro, R.R. (). Vertex and edge expansion properties for rapid mixing. In the last years, several authors studied a class of continuous-time semi-Markov processes obtained by time-changing Markov processes by hitting times of independent subordinators. Such processes are governed by integro-differential convolution equations of generalized fractional type. The aim of this paper is to develop a discrete-time counterpart of such a theory and to show relationships.

Mathematical Aspects of Mixing Times in Markov Chains Article in Foundations and Trends® in Theoretical Computer Science 1(3) January with 19 Reads How we measure 'reads'. The rate of convergence to stationarity of a ﬁnite Markov chain is typically measured by the so-called mixing time, deﬁned as the ﬁrst time τ by which the L1 (or more generally, Lp) distance between the distribution at time τ and the stationary distribution falls below a small threshold, such as 1/ Size: KB.

In the first half of the book, the aim is the study of discrete time and continuous time Markov chains. The first part of the text is very well written and easily accessible to the advanced undergraduate engineering or mathematics student/5(19).

Norris () gives an introduction to Markov chains and their applications, but does not focus on Size: 4MB. The mixing time of a Markov chain is the number of steps needed for this convergence to happen, to a suitable degree of accuracy. A family of Markov chains is said to be rapidly mixing if the mixing time is a polynomial function of some size parameter of the Markov chain, and slowly mixing otherwise.

This book is about finite Markov chains, their stable distributions and mixing times, and methods for determining whether Markov. Markov Chains and Mixing Times is a magical book, managing to be both friendly and deep. It gently introduces probabilistic techniques so that an outsider can follow.

At the same time, it is the first book covering the geometric theory of Markov chains and has much that will be new to experts. It is certainly THE book that I will use to teach from.

This book is an introduction to the modern approach to the theory of Markov chains. The main goal of this approach is to determine the rate of convergence of a Markov chain to the stationary distribution as a function of the size and geometry of the state space.

The authors develop the key tools for estimating convergence times, including coupling, strong stationary times, and spectral methods. times to mixing, [J.J. Hunter, Variances of first passage times in a Markov chain with applications to mixing times, Linear Algebra Appl.

We compare the performance of these bounds with those in the literature, and in particular we consider Stein’s method for discrete uniform, binomial, geometric and hypergeometric Author: Michael C.H.

Montengro and P. Tetali) Foundations and Trends in Theoretical Computer Science, NOW Publishers, Recent. A 1–2 model configuration is a subset of edges of a hexagonal lattice satisfying the constraint that each vertex is incident to 1 or 2 edges. We introduce Markov chains to sample the 1–2 model configurations on the 2D hexagonal lattice and prove that the mixing time of these chains is polynomial in the sizes of the graphs for a large class of probability : Zhongyang Li.

In probability theory, the mixing time of a Markov chain is the time until the Markov chain is "close" to its steady state distribution. More precisely, a fundamental result about Markov chains is that a finite state irreducible aperiodic chain has a unique stationary distribution π and, regardless of the initial state, the time-t distribution of the chain converges to π as t tends to infinity.
