Divergence Rate Between Discrete
Markov Sources 
Ziad Rached Fady Alajaji L. Lorne Campbell
Abstract
In this work, we provide a computable expression for the Kullback-Leibler
divergence rate, lim n!1 1
n D(p (n) kq
(n) ), between two time-invariant nite-alpha-
bet Markov sources of arbitrary order and arbitrary initial distributions de-
scribed by the probability distributions p (n) and q (n) , respectively. We illus-
