Time Homogeneity Definition A continuous-time stochastic process { X ( t ) , t 0 } is said to be time homogeneous if it satisfies P ( X ( t + s ) = j | X ( s ) = i ) = P ( X ( t ) = j | X (0) = i ) for any t , s 0 and any states i and j. the transition probabilities depend only on the given states and the exact time between transitions and not on the initial time 2/ 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
