2.2 Applications of Matrix Recurrence Relations

Note: if you cannot remember how to use a matrix recurrence relation, revise notes for 2.1 Simple Matrix Recurrence Relations.

Transition Diagrams

  • 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.
