## More typos [mcsm.6]

**E**dward Kao found some typos in Problems 6.22 and 6.24 of the Markov chapter of ** Monte Carlo Statistical Methods**:

– on page 250, Problem 6.22 (d) should be phrased as “*show that the invariant distribution is also the limiting distribution of the chain*” instead of the obvious “*show that the invariant distribution is also the stationary distribution of the chain*“. And the solution to (c) given in the solution manual has a mistake (see Kao’s solution in ** Introduction to Stochastic Processes**, Example 4.3.1).

– on page 250, Problem 6.24 (a) should ask to show aperiodicity, not periodicity. And in part (b) the transition in 0 should be defined in the same way as in Problem 6.22.
