A System of Multivariable Krawtchouk Polynomials and a Probabilistic Application

The one variable Krawtchouk polynomials, a special case of the 2F1 function did appear in the spectral representation of the transition kernel for a Markov chain studied a long time ago by M. Hoare and M. Rahman. A multivariable extension of this Markov chain was considered in a later paper by these...
