Abstract:   (3078 Views)

Estimation procedures for nonstationary Markov chains appear to be relatively sparse. This work introduces empirical  Bayes estimators  for the transition probability  matrix of a finite nonstationary  Markov chain. The data are assumed to be of  a panel study type in which each data set consists of a sequence of observations on N>=2 independent and identically distributed chains recorded collectively.

Keywords: Bayes estimates, empirical Bayes estimates, natural conjugate priors.
