Centennial of Markov Chains

Today is the 100th anniversary of Andrey Markov's presentation of what are now known as "Markov chains".

Actually on January 23, 1913 of the Julian calendar, Andrey A. Markov presented for the Royal Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg his analysis of Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin. At the time, the Russian Empire was using the Julian calendar. The 100th anniversary of the celebrated presentation is actually February 5, 2013, in the now used Gregorian calendar.

To celebrate, Wolfram guys did a case study of Alice in Wonderland. Take a look:
