## What is an example of a stochastic process?

### When does a stochastic process reach state E0 before en?

Finally, if the process is at stateEk,0

#### Is a stochastic process discrete or continuous?

Yes, generally speaking, a stochastic process is a collection of random variables, indexed by some “time interval” T. (Which is discrete or continuous, usually it has a start, in most cases t 0: min T = 0 .) But it also has an ordering, and the random variables in the collection are usually taken to “respect the ordering” in some sense.

**How do you find the time of a stochastic process?**

1) Find the stochastic matrix. 2) Prove that the Markov chain is irreducible. 3) Find the invariant probability vector. 4) Check if the Markov chain is regular. 5) To time t =0 the process is in stateE1.DenotebyT1the random variable, which indicates the time of the rst return toE1. Compute P {T1= k} ,k=2, 3, 4, 5, and nd the mean ofT1.
