# Stochastic Processes, Markov Chains and Markov Jumps

Udemy Course Stochastic Processes, Markov Chains and Markov Jumps | NED
A Markov chain is a stochastic model describing a sequence of possible events in which the probability of each event depends only on the state attained in the previous event. In continuous-time, it is known as a Markov process. It is named after the Russian mathematician Andrey Markov.
