Estimation of Stationary Densities for Markov Chains

Abstract

We describe a new estimator of the stationary density of a Markov chain on general state space. The new estimator is easier to compute, converges faster, and empirically gives visually superior estimates than more standard estimators such as nearest-neighbour or kernel density estimators.
