In an earlier paper the author introduced the statistic η π i i jj j m m = = ∑ 1 as a measure of the " mixing time " or " time to stationarity " in a finite irreducible discrete time Markov chain with stationary distribution {p j } and m ij as the mean first passage time from state i to state j of the Markov chain. This was shown to be independent of the(More)
In an earlier paper (Hunter, 2002) it was shown that mean first passage times play an important role in determining bounds on the relative and absolute differences between the stationary probabilities in perturbed finite irreducible discrete time Markov chains. Further when two perturbations of the transition probabilities in a single row are carried out(More)
Progress in the eld of Computer Vision/Image Understanding has long been hampered by the lack of standard software environments for research and application development. The Image Understanding Environment (IUE) is being implemented to provide a freely distributed standard software environment appropriate for a wide range of research and development(More)
The first time I met George Styan was in July 2004 in Lisbon when he was on his way to the 11th ILAS Conference in Coimbra. But George had already been in Portugal before and I learned how much he was fond of Conventual, a very fine and nice old style restaurant in Lisbon. Then I also learned that George really is an appreciator of good food and a very(More)
