Does anybody know of a good resource which might discuss these in greater detail? In particular, once one has reduced a Markov chain to a set of communicating classes, are there methods to treat this as a "coarse grained" Markov chain for which one can then compute transition rates between the classes?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks!
