    "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."

    A good example comes out from the queuing theory. If there is a n-length 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 n-1 (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
