Just found a second dinosaur-related question in the ASM manual. Highly approve. Someone should consider writing an entire manual using dinosaur questions - at least an entire section.

I'm curious if there are any quick ways to recognize that a Markov chain is time-reversible. Two things that I've come across in my study materials are that:

Yeah, I also don't think it's a crucial topic. It's just a bit mysterious to me, and I think it might help tie together some other concepts.

I'm still early days in ASM for MAS1 - only up through Markov chains. (I'm aiming for the fall sitting.) I've used it for other exams, and the style strikes me the same so far.

Thoughts on Chapman-Kolmogorov:

1. Why is it listed as the Chapman-Kolmogorov Equations? It seems like one equation to me.

+4 best friend has changed the game entirely for me as an instinct player. Everyone once in a great while I do a raid without any best friends, and the return to a 7-9-ball reality is disconcerting.
