On an approximation made when analysing stochastic processes

  • Byron J. T. Morgan (a1) and John P. Hinde (a1)


We investigate the effect of a particular mode of approximation by means of four examples of its use; in each case the model approximated is a Markov process with discrete states in continuous time.
