# Constructor for TransitionParam class

### Description

Contains parameters for computing transition probabilities

### Usage

1 2 3 4 | ```
TransitionParam(taup = 1e+10, taumax = 1 - 5e+06)
## S4 method for signature 'TransitionParam'
show(object)
``` |

### Arguments

`taup` |
length-one numeric vector |

`taumax` |
The maximum probability that the current state is the same as the preceding state. See details |

`object` |
a |

### Details

Diagonal elements of the transition probability matrix are
computed as e^-2*d/taup, where d is the distance between markers
i and i-1 and `taup`

is typically in the range of 1xe10. This
probability is constrained to be no larger than `taumax`

. The
probabilities on the off-diagonal elements are the same and are
subject to the constraint that the rows of the transition
probability matrix sum to 1.

### Examples

1 2 3 | ```
TransitionParam()
## higher values of taup make transitions between states less likely
TransitionParam(taup=1e12)
