Stochastic matrices are compared in the context of memoryless channels in information theory; the comparisons are then generalized, and in turn, lead to new implications and results that will add to an array of new concepts and tools for the practitioner.
The overall scope of this work shows important connections among ideas from diverse fields including mathematics, economics, and biology. Its clarity of presentation makes this a resource or a good for self-study or for graduate course.
