We consider the case of two environments only. Taking m = 2 considerably simplifies the mathematical analysis, and allows us to show how strikingly different the behaviour of the system is, when there is a mixture of stable and unstable environments. In the next section, we reorganize the state space, so that the Markov process takes the guise of a quasi-birth-and-death process, for which we readily have a precise formulation of the stationary probability vector. We use in Section 3 a spectral decomposition approach which allows us in Section 4 to obtain a first order approximation for the stationary distribution.

This general principle can be used to solve linear systems and eigenvalue problems which arise when computing stationary probability distributions of Markov chains. It can also be used to approximate the product of the exponential of a matrix by a vector as occurs when following the solutions of transient models. In this paper we give an overview of these ideas and discuss preconditioning techniques which constitute an essential ingredient in the success of Krylov subspace methods. 1 INTRODUCTION Direct methods have often been preferred to iterative methods when solving sparse linear systems of equations such as those that arise when computing the stationary probability distribution of Markov chains.

M - 1 can be reduced to m/2 complex matrix multiplications and two real matrix multiplications. Each complex matrix product can be computed with three real matrix multiplication and with 5 matrix additions, so that the computation of the matrix products P;q;, j = 0, ... , m - 1, can be carried out with about m{3k3 + k 2 ) real operations. ll cost of computing the product of the matrices A and B (block convolution) is about {15/2)k 2nlog2 n + 3nk3 real arithmetic operations. Since the first block column of C is t~ product of A and the first block column of B, the same cost bound applies to the computation of the product of a block triangular block Toeplitz matrix and a block vector.
