Note: if you cannot remember how to use a matrix recurrence relation, revise notes for 2.1 Simple Matrix Recurrence Relations.
- Transition diagrams provide a visual method for modelling how a system changes between states.
- They consist of a series of nodes (dots) representing the variables in the system, with arrows drawn between them showing the movement of individuals/objects in the system between variables (e.g. the percentage of people who go from playing soccer one month to playing baseball the next).
- By convention numerical values should be shown as percentages in transition diagrams.
