Abstract : This report is a brief introduction to the use of signal flow theory as applied to probability and reliability problems. Two examples are presented, one for a discrete-time Markov process and the other for a continuous-time Markov process, in order to clarify the definitions used and to serve as a guide in the solution of similar.
