The 2006 A.A. Markov Anniversary Meeting

An international conference in honor of the 150th anniversary of the birth of A.A. Markov was held on the campus of College of Charleston SC. Special sessions were devoted to a historical perspective of Markov and his contemporaries and to the many important applications of Markov chains in today's fast paced world. A.A. Markov Anniversary Meeting.
