## Abstract

A metric on the space of probability measures on the state of a large network is introduced, with respect to which the stationary measure of a Markov process on the network is proved under suitable hypotheses to vary uniformly smoothly with parameters and the rate of relaxation to equilibrium to never suddenly decrease.
