# Markov chain

<probability> (Named after Andrei Markov) A model of sequences of events where the probability of an event occurring depends upon the fact that a preceding event occurred.

A Markov process is governed by a Markov chain.

In simulation, the principle of the Markov chain is applied to the selection of samples from a probability density function to be applied to the model.

Simscript II.5 uses this approach for some modelling functions.
