Sensitivity to perturbation of the stationary distribution: Some refinements. (English) Zbl 0657.60096

For a finite state space Markov chain the sensitivity of the stationary distribution with respect to perturbations of the transition probabilities is investigated; an upper bound is given for chains which have a state accessible in one step from all the other states.
