In this paper we extend the results of the research started in [6] and [7], in which Karlin-McGregor diagonalization of certain reversible Markov chains over countably infinite general state spaces by orthogonal polynomials was used to estimate the rate of convergence to a stationary distribution. We use a method of Koornwinder [5] to generate a large and… CONTINUE READING
