title = "Representations for the rate of convergence of birth-death processes",

abstract = "We display some representations for the rate of convergence of a birth-death process, which are useful for obtaining upper and lower bounds. The expressions are brought to light by exploiting the spectral representation for the transition probabilities of a birth-death process and results from the theory of orthogonal polynomials.",
