Stochastic modeling of usage patterns in a web-based information system

Hui-Min Chen, Michael D. Cooper
2002 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
This article uses continuous-time stochastic models, mainly based on semi-Markov chains, to derive user state transition patterns (both in rates and in probabilities) in a Web-based information system.  ...  Second, by using a three-layer hierarchical taxonomy of the system Web pages, user sessions in each usage group were transformed into a sequence of states.  ...  Conclusion In this article, a continuous-time stochastic process (a semi-Markov chain) was applied to modeling user statetransition behavior in a Web-based information system.  ...
