Buy Article:


A discrete stepwise Markov chain for predicting relative performance of early selections at time of harvest is transformed into a continuous-time Markov chain by a simple transformation to a canonical form. Asymptotic predictions for t → ∞ are made possible. Prediction errors are derived from an autoregressive scheme and assumptions of multinominal one-step ahead errors. For. Sci. 39(4):845-850.

Keywords: Eigenvalues; asymptotic predictions; errors; predictions; size distribution; steady state
