A few remarks are first made on invariant probability measures of a transition probability operator. The notion of irreducibility is introduced for a transition operator acting on the continuous functions on a compact space and implications of this assumption are examined. Finally the unitary and isometric parts of the operator are isolated and interpreted in terms of the behavior of iterates of the operator. Author
