Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to understand the intuition of the definition of the period of a state in a Markov chain.

Say for example we can go from state i to state i in 3,5,7,9,11.... and so on steps.

The gcd here is one. So is this aperiodic state or one with periodicity of 2.

Thanks
