Multi-agent systems can be successfully described by kinetic models, which allow one to explore the large scale aggregate trends resulting from elementary microscopic interactions. The latter may be formalised as collision-like rules, in the spirit of the classical kinetic approach in gas dynamics, but also as Markov jump processes, which assume that every agent is stimulated by the other agents to change state according to a certain transition probability distribution. In this paper we establish a parallelism between these two descriptions, whereby we show how the understanding of the kinetic jump process models may be improved taking advantage of techniques typical of the collisional approach.
