Markov Chain

A Markov chain (discrete-time Markov chain or DTMC[1]) named after Andrey Markov, is a mathematical system that undergoes transitions from one state to another, among a finite or countable number of possible states. It is a random process usually characterized as MemoryLess: the next state depends only on the current state and not on the sequence of events that preceded it. This specific kind of "memorylessness" is called the Markov property. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markov_chain
