This changed with the publication of the “Analytical Methods” paper of Andrei N. Kolmogorov (1931) on continuous-time random processes. Together, their results laid the foundation of continuous-time Markov processes. Consider a Markov process with continuous time parameter and a countable number of states. Let be the conditional probability of finding the process in state n at time t, given that it was in state i at some previous time r < t. Then, for some intermediate time s between r and t, P satisfies the Chapman–Kolmogorov equation: with side conditions and where the summations run over all states k.
