COURSE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The goal of the course is to learn fundamental results of the theory of homogeneous Markov chains with discrete time, and apply these results in mathematical modelling of random phenomena.

1. Introduction to Markov chains.
2. Definition and basic properties. Transition matrix. Classes.
3. Hitting times. Probability absorptions.
4. Strong Markov property.
5. Recurrency and transiency. Analysis of random walks.
6. Invariant and stationary distribution. Limiting distribution.
7. Convergence towards equilibrium.
8. Ergodic theorem.
9. Time reversal.
10. Introduction to Markov chains in continuous time.
11. Application of Markov chains. Electric networks.
12. Application of Markov chains in biology.
13. Decision Markov processes.
14. MCMC (Markov chain Monte Carlo).
