Abstract:

This research contribution describes the basic methodology for analyzing semi-Markov processes and demonstrates how to solve the necessary equation numerically. Two mechanisms for producing semi-Markov processes are described and examples presented. Algorithms needed to analyze semi-Markov continuous- and discrete-time processes are derived. Author
