## Products of Random Stochastic Matrices and Application

##### Abstract:

Motivated by problems in distributed optimization and computation, we discuss a generalization of the Perron-Frobenius Theorem to products of random stochastic matrices. To do so, we introduce several objects such as infinite flow graph, infinite flow property, and show the connection of these concepts to ergodicity of chains of random stochastic matrices.
