Evaluating first passage times in markov chains form the perspective of asymptotic and empirical information

First passage times underlie many stochastic processes in which the event, such as a chemical reaction,the firing of a neuron, or the triggering of a stock option, relies on a variable reaching a specified valuefor the first time. In this study, a transition matrix was estimated by taking into account the closingvalues of Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE -100) index from 20.01.2009 to 18.01.2013 for discreteMarkov model. Empirical information regarding the first passage time was obtained by writing…

The Markov model is found to fit well to the dataset and reveals new insights, including the most likely gaze trajectory and how some application features attract attention in preference to others.


Passage Times for Markov Chains
This book is a survey of work on passage times in stable Markov chains with a discrete state space and a continuous time and presents a unifying treatment of passage times, written in a systematic manner and based on modern developments.
