DISCRETE TIME PERIODICALLY CORRELATED MARKOV PROCESSES

Abstract: We consider a discrete time periodically correlated process which is also
Markov in the wide sense. We provide closed formulas for the covariance function
and for the spectral density of such a process.
Interestingly, we observe that the covariance function, and also the spectral density, is fully
specified only by the values of where is the
period of the process.
