On Ergodicity Coefficients of Infinite Stochastic Matrices

Adolf Rhodius[1]

(1) Technische Universität Dresden, Germany

A class of ergodicity coefficients for infinite stochastic matrices is introduced and investigated with respect to connections to the well-known $\delta$-coefficient. The theory yields results on the behaviour of infinite products of stochastic matrices, in particular on inhomogeneous Markov chains and Markov systems.

Keywords: Extreme points, spectrum, product of matrices, weak ergodicity
