The _master equation_ for the Markov chain is a vector differential equation:

\\[\Gamma_{\sigma}'(t) = H(\Gamma_{\sigma}(t))\\]

where \\(H\\) is a linear operator to be constructed from the weighted graph for the Markov chain.

\\[\Gamma_{\sigma}'(t) = H(\Gamma_{\sigma}(t))\\]

where \\(H\\) is a linear operator to be constructed from the weighted graph for the Markov chain.
