Finite-state Markov chains obey Benford's law( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sequence of real numbers (xn) is Benford if the significands, i.e. the fractionparts in the floating-point representation of (xn), are distributed logarithmically.Similarly, a discrete-time irreducible and aperiodic finite-state Markov chain withprobability transition matrix P and limiting matrix P* is Benford if every componentof both sequences of matrices (Pn - P*) and (Pn+1 - Pn) is Benford oreventually zero. Using recent tools that established Benford behavior both forNewton's method and for finite-dimensional linear maps, via the classical theoriesof uniform distribution modulo 1 and Perron-Frobenius, this paper derives asimple sufficient condition ('nonresonance') guaranteeing that P, or the Markovchain associated with it, is Benford. This result in turn is used to show thatalmost all Markov chains are Benford, in the sense that if the transition probabilitiesare chosen independently and continuously, then the resulting Markovchain is Benford with probability one. Concrete examples illustrate the variouscases that arise, and the theory is complemented with several simulations andpotential applications
Goal and Average Cost Problems in Decision Processes with Finite State Spaces by Theodore Preston Hill( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal investigator carried out research in probability theory, and, in particular, in the theory of decision processes. First, it was shown that in every finite state decision process (gambling problem) with single fixed goal, there always exists a stationary strategy which not only (nearly) maximizes the probability of reaching the goal, but (nearly) minimizes the expected time to the goal. This result was considerably generalized to include decision processes with arbitrary state spaces and total cost criteria. Investigations of these processes led to results in optimal stopping theory, and in classical probability theory. Universal, best possible constants were found which compared the optimal expected return of a decision maker with the expected supremum of a sequence of independent random variables. A generalization of the classical Borel-Cantelli Lemma was found, as was a very general conditioning principle for strong laws of several forms. The question of existence of good Markov strategies in finite state decision processes with average reward criteria was addressed, and various partial results were obtained, although the general case was not settled.

Base-invariance implies Benford's Law by Theodore Preston Hill( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A derivation of Benford's Law or the First-Digit Phenomenon is given assuming only base-invariance of the underlying law. The only base-invariant distributions are shown to be convex combinations of two extremal probabilities, one corresponding to point mass and the other a log-Lebesgue measure. The main tools in the proof are identification of an appropriate mantissa [Greek letter sigma]-algebra on the positive reals, and results for invariant measures on the circle."
