For a homogeneous CTMC show that the Laplace transform of the transitionprobability matrix P(t), denoted by P(s), is given byP(s)=(sI Q)1

Statistics for Psychology Concept 2 * z-test * single sample t test * used to compare a sample mean to a population with known mean, but the variance of the population is unknown * dependent means t test * also known as a “repeated measures” or “within subjects” research design because it compares two scores for each individual in the sample * Looks for a before and after effect * frequently seen in determining efficacy of a particular therapy or medication on a group of individuals * “before” scores as a baseline prior to a treatment * “after” scores gathered following a treatment or intervention (a dependent variable manipulation) * after minus before * unknown population mean and variance * two scores for each
