In this paper, we study the quasi-stationarity and quasi-ergodicity of general Markov processes. We show, among other things, that if X is a standard Markov process admitting a dual with respect to a finite measure m and if X admits a strictly positive continuous transition density p(t, x, y) (with respect to m) which is bounded in (x, y) for every t > 0, then X has a unique quasi-stationary distribution and a unique quasi-ergodic distribution. We also present several classes of Markov processes satisfying the above conditions.
- Markov processes
- mean ratio quasi-stationary distributions
- quasi-stationary distributions
- quasiergodicity distributions
