This paper is directed at the use of Markov chains in the modeling of radiative heat transfer in specular enclosures containing nonparticipating gases. Following a brief review of previous literature in that area of investigation, a two-parameter state definition is given. The analysis of general infinitely long enclosures using that definition is then discussed, and the paper concludes with a report of selected implementation results.
