pysal.explore.giddy.markov.homogeneity(transition_matrices, regime_names=[], class_names=[], title='Markov Homogeneity Test')[source]

Test for homogeneity of Markov transition probabilities across regimes.

Parameters:
transition_matrices : list

of transition matrices for regimes, all matrices must have same size (r, c). r is the number of rows in the transition matrix and c is the number of columns in the transition matrix.

regime_names : sequence

Labels for the regimes.

class_names : sequence

Labels for the classes/states of the Markov chain.

title : string

name of test.

Returns:
: implicit

an instance of Homogeneity_Results.
