Abstract: Three decompositions of a substochastic transition function are shown to yield substochastic parts. These are the Lebesgue decomposition with respect to a finite measure, the decomposition into completely atomic and continuous parts, and on $ {R^n}$, a decomposition giving a part with continuous distribution function and a part with discontinuous distribution function.
