Drift vectors are not sufficient to determine recurrence of a Markov chain on ℤ3 +

  • Mitchell Kotler (a1)

For a Markov chain in n = 2, drift vectors (conditional expected jumps) on the interior and the boundaries distinguish between recurrence and transience. The result of this paper is that the analogous proposition in the n = 3 case fails.
