On Stochastic Rewriting and Combinatorics via Rule-Algebraic Methods

Nicolas Behr

Building upon the rule-algebraic stochastic mechanics framework, we present new results on the relationship of stochastic rewriting systems described in terms of continuous-time Markov chains, their embedded discrete-time Markov chains and certain types of generating function expressions in combinatorics. We introduce a number of generating function techniques that permit a novel form of static analysis for rewriting systems based upon marginalizing distributions over the states of the rewriting systems via pattern-counting observables.
