The solution at t = 100s was computed using the Krylov FSP algorithm and took only about 5 minutes on a single processor on UQ’s Gust machine. Note that the distribution is relatively peaked, and so the nested projection that tracks the elevated part of the support is still relatively small, including only around 9 000 states, making the inexact Krylov method relatively fast. 5 hours. Firstly, the support spreads only relatively slowly, and secondly, the support is dynamic so that some states originally included in the projection are eventually dropped once their contribution becomes too small.

This is actually what is known as the chemical master equation. It may be written in an equivalent matrix-vector form so that the evolution of the probability density p(t) (which is a vector of probabilities P (x; t), indexed by the states x) is described by a system of linear, constant coefficient, ordinary differential equations: ˙ = Ap(t) p(t) where the matrix A = [aij ] is populated by the propensities and represents the infinitesimal generator of the Markov process as defined in [19], for example.

We select the first components pˆk (tk ) that satisfy ˆ k = 11T pˆk (tk ) ≥ 1 − Γ tk · tf ˆ k . 4), the above criteria ensures that Γk ≥ Γ ˆ retained if Γk is not chosen less than Γk . In general, the selection at each time-step can be guided by the distribution at the previous time-step as well as the natural geometry and reachability of the model. It should be noted that there are alternative truncation strategies that preserve the Markov property. One way of doing this is to perturb the diagonal entries of the truncated matrix so as to recover the zero column sum condition.
