I think the closest to documentation of Markov mode's internals is this presentation, by Simon who contributed this mode to jumbo: http://www.openwall.com/presentations/Passwords12-Probabilistic-Models/ I also want to say once again that if you do any research involving JtR jumbo's Markov mode, please also include in your research JtR's incremental mode, which pre-dates Markov mode and isn't named Markov but is also closely related. Unfortunately, the Markov vs. incremental mode comparison in the above presentation uses JtR 1.7's incremental mode, whereas 1.8's should perform better. Alexander
