In many Markov modeling contexts, the system under consideration exhibits strong time-of-day effects, day-of-week effects, or seasonality effects. In fact, most real-world systems that are modeled as Markov processes exhibit such non-stationarities. Nevertheless, the great majority of the academic literature focuses on modeling and theory for Markov processes with stationary transition probabilities, which describe systems that have no such time-of-day effects or seasonality. In this talk, we will describe an analytical approximation approach to handle non-stationary Markov models, anchored on…
