Abstract:

The boundary theory as viewed in this book is a study of Markov chains with certain infinities discontinuities that are not jumps in the sample functions. In the first part a simple boundary is set up by a direct, intuitive method and the basic relevant sample behavior is studied. The second, more substantial part of this book deals with the analysis of the chain in relation to its menimal part and its exits and entrances to and from the boundary. Author
