Applies Markov chain approaches to obtain mean life expectancy from a matrix population model.
lifeExpectancy(matU, startLife = 1)
The survival component of a matrix population model (i.e. a square projection matrix reflecting survival-related transitions; e.g. progression, stasis, and retrogression)
Index of the first stage at which the author considers the beginning of life. Defaults to 1.
Returns life expectancy. If
matU is singular (often indicating
infinite life expectancy), returns
