Using Markov chains to calculate the means of students staying at the dept. of math. / college of education for pure sciences / Al-Anbar University


The present paper aims at calculating the mean of student staying at the dep. Of math. College of education for pure sciences- university of Anbar before awarded the in mathematics. This mean can be used in estimating the number of graduate students in upcoming years.The absorbing Markov matrix was used for that purpose. Results have shown that 88% of first year students can get the in mathematics, 97% of second year students, 97% of third year students and 99% of fourth year students.
