Reversibility; stationarity Stationary process: A stochastic process is stationary if for all t1,…,tn,  Theorem: If the initial distribution is a stationary distribution, then the process is stationary Reversible process: A stochastic process is reversible if for all t1,…,tn,  NOTE: labelling of states only gives suggestion of one dimensional state space; this is not required

Reversibility; stationarity Lemma: A reversible process is stationary. Theorem: A stationary Markov chain is reversible if and only if there exists a collection of positive numbers π(j), j  S, summing to unity that satisfy the detailed balance equations When there exists such a collection π(j), j  S, it is the equilibrium distribution Proof

Lemma 1.9 / Corollary 1.10: If the transition rates of a reversible Markov process with state space S and equilibrium distribution are altered by changing q(j,k) to cq(j,k) for where c>0 then the resulting Markov process is reversible in equilibrium and has equilibrium distribution where B is the normalizing constant. If c=0 then the reversible Markov process is truncated to A and the resulting Markov process is reversible with equilibrium distribution Truncation of reversible processes 10 A S\A

Time reversed process X(t) reversible Markov process  X(-t) also, but Lemma 1.11: tijdshomogeneity not inherited for non- stationary process Theorem 1.12 : If X(t) is a stationary Markov process with transition rates q(j,k), and equilibrium distribution π(j), j  S, then the reversed process X(  - t) is a stationary Markov process with transition rates and the same equilibrium distribution Theorem 1.13: Kelly’s lemma Let X(t) be a stationary Markov processwith transition rates q(j,k). If we can find a collection of numbers q’(j,k) such that q’(j)=q(j), j  S, and a collection of positive numbers  (j), j  S, summing to unity, such that then q’(j,k) are the transition rates of the time- reversed process, and  (j), j  S, is the equilibrium distribution of both processes.
