Darstellung von Wahrscheinlichkeitsbeziehungen durch Graphen und Markovsche Ketten. (Représentation des relations aléatoires par des graphes et des chaînes markoviennes)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Complementary to the article about the application of the probability in geographical investigations (Geogr. Berichte, 2/1978) graphic methods of representation by means of graphs and Markov chains are demonstrated. In a short introduction the importance of directed graphs is shown, followed by a schedule of rules for the calculation of probabilities by means of the graph-theory. Further on chains of probability and Markov chains are demonstrated. Hereby the probability of an event always depends on the immediate preceding one. To reduce calculations exponential series are used for longer chains. Several examples are given to illustrate these methods.
