Non-negative matrices and Markov chains. Revised reprint of the 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1099.60004

Springer Series in Statistics. New York, NY: Springer (ISBN 0-387-29765-0/pbk; 0-387-32792-4/ebook). xiii, 287 p. (2006).
This book is a photographic reproduction of the book of the same title published in 1981 (Zbl 0471.60001), for which there has been continuing demand on account of its accessible technical level. Its appearance also helped generate considerable subsequent work on inhomogeneous products of matrices. This printing adds an additional bibliography on coefficients of ergodicity and a list of corrigenda.
