Uniform consistency and weak convergence is proved of estimators of the transition probabilities of an arbitrary finite state space Markov renewal process, based on n independent and identically distributed “right censored” realizations of the process. The approach uses the theory of stochastic integrals and counting processes. It is shown how the results may be extended to the non-identically distributed case and to general censorship under suitable conditions.
