We consider a partition t1 + t2 = u0 + t2 < u1 + t1 < · · · < um + t2 = t of the interval [t1 + t2 , t] and we set δ = max0≤i≤m (ui+1 − ui ). We have m−1 P(An ) = lim δ→0 P(X(ui + t2 ) = 0, X(ui+1 + t2 ) − X(ui + t2 ) = 1, i=0 X(t) − X(ui+1 + t2 ) = n − 1), or, using postulates (a) and (b), m−1 P(An ) = lim δ→0 P(X(ui + t2 ) = 0)P(X(ui+1 − ui ) = 1) i=0 × P(X(t − ui+1 − t2 ) = n − 1).

A state i ∈ E is said to be: – recurrent if Pi (sup(t ≥ 0 | Xt = i) = ∞) = 1; – transient if Pi (sup(t ≥ 0 | Xt = i) < ∞) = 1; – positive recurrent if it is recurrent and μii = E i (ηi ) < ∞; – null recurrent if it is recurrent and μii = ∞.
