Abstract It is well known that for a strictly stationary, reversible, Harris recurrent Markov chain, the ρ-mixing condition is equivalent to geometric ergodicity and to a spectral gap condition. In this note, it will be shown with an example that for that class of Markov chains, the interlaced variant of the ρ-mixing condition fails to be equivalent to those conditions.

Keywords reversible Markov chain, ρ-mixing, ρ * -mixing, geometric ergodicity.
