At the end of 2 nd week the state vector is Px 1


x (2) = Px (1) = |.25 .20 .25 .30| |.25| = |.2550 | |.20 .30 .25 .30| |.20| = |.2625 | |.25 .20 .40 .10| |.25| = |.2325 | |.30 .30 .10 .30| |.30| = |.2500 |
Note that we can compute x 2 directly using x 0 as x (2) = Px (1) = P(Px (0) ) = P 2 x (0) Similarly, we can find the state vector for 5 th , 10 th , 20 th , 30 th , and 50 th observation periods. x (5) = P 5 x (0) = .2495 .2634 .2339 .2532 x (10) = P 10 x (0) = .2495 .2634 .2339 .2532 x (20) = P 20 x (0) = .2495 .2634 .2339 .2532 x (30) = .2495 .2634 .2339 .2532
x (50) = .2495 .2634 .2339 .2532

The same limiting results can be obtained by solving the linear system of equations P P = P using this JavaScript. It suggests that the state vector approached some fixed vector, as the number of observation periods increase. This is not the case for every Markov Chain. For example, if P = 0 1 1 0 , and

In environmental and occupational health regulation, it has been argued that if modern cost–benefit analyses had been applied prospectively to decisions such as whether to mandate the removal of lead from gasoline, block the construction of two proposed dams just above and below the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River , and regulate workers' exposure to vinyl chloride , these measures would not have been implemented even though they are considered to be highly successful in retrospect. [49] The Clean Air Act has been cited in retrospective studies as a case where benefits exceeded costs, but the knowledge of the benefits (attributable largely to the benefits of reducing particulate pollution ) was not available until many years later.

Background: This web application enables a cost-benefit analysis to be conducted for a proposed Weed Management Programme within a Regional Pest Management Plan as required by the New Zealand Biosecurity Act 1993. It is suitable for the "Exclusion", "Eradication", "Progressive Containment" and "Sustained Control" programme types defined in the National Policy Direction but not the "Protecting Values in Places" programme. The model assumes that the weed would spread logistically in the absence of the programme and that the management would prevent this spread. The Benefits in the CBA are the lost earnings that would be prevented by the management and the Costs are the sum of the programme's implementation costs and lost earnings in the infested area.
