Abstract: 
In this paper we explore the relation between matrix measures and Quasi-Birth-and-Death processes. We derive an integral representation of the transition function in terms of a matrix valued spectral measure and corresponding orthogonal matrix polynomials. We characterize several stochastic properties of Quasi-Birth-and-Death processes by means of this matrix measure and illustrate the theoretical results by several examples.
