Parameter-dependent Markov chains with exponentially small transition rates arise in modeling complex systems in physics, chemistry, and biology. Such processes often manifest metastability, and the spectral properties of the generators largely govern their long-term dynamics. In this work, we propose a constructive graph-algorithmic approach to computing the asymptotic estimates of eigenvalues...
