4.2 Applications of Eigenvalues/Eigenvectors – Markov Chains A Markov chain is a discrete-time stochastic process used to model certain systems in physics and statistics, for example. With a Markov Chain, a transition matrix is used to predict future states of the system. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors are used to calculate the steady state of the system after a long period of time. We will...
