Markov chains in random environment with applications in queueing theory and machine learning

11/11/2019 ∙ by Attila Lovas, et al. ∙ 0

We prove the existence of limiting distributions for a large class of Markov chains on a general state space in a random environment. We assume suitable versions of the standard drift and minorization conditions. In particular, the system dynamics should be contractive on the average with respect to the Lyapunov function and large enough small sets should exist with large enough minorization constants. We also establish that a law of large numbers holds for bounded functionals of the process. Applications to queuing systems and to machine learning algorithms are presented.
