Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"a stochastic model describing a sequence of possible events in which the probability of each event depends only on the state attained in the previous event."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A good example comes out from the queuing theory. If there is a nlength queue, if we assume that the queue can be modelled as a markov chain with n states, only one of the following states are possible as the next state 1 the length of the queue in the next instance is n1 (decrease one state) 2 the length of the queue in the next instance is n+1 (increase in only one state) 3  the length of the queue in the next instance is n (does not change) so this means from state n, the state cannot jump to n+r with r being other than (0 ,1 or 1) on the next instance
