In this chapter we introduce the culminating form of the geometric ergodicity theorem, and show that such convergence can be viewed as geometric convergence of an operator norm; simultaneously, we show that the classical concept of uniform (or strong) ergodicity, where the convergence in (13.4) is bounded independently of the starting point, becomes a special case of this operator norm convergence.
