The transition matrix
P for a homogeneous Markov chain is as follows (in
mfile
npr16_08.m ):
$$P=\left[\begin{array}{ccccccc}0.2& 0.5& 0.3& 0& 0& 0& 0\\ 0.6& 0.1& 0.3& 0& 0& 0& 0\\ 0.2& 0.7& 0.1& 0& 0& 0& 0\\ 0& 0& 0& 0.6& 0.4& 0& 0\\ 0& 0& 0& 0.5& 0.5& 0& 0\\ 0.1& 0.3& 0& 0.2& 0.1& 0.1& 0.2\\ 0.1& 0.2& 0.1& 0.2& 0.2& 0.2& 0\end{array}\right]$$
 Note that the chain has two subchains, with states
$\{1,2,3\}$ and
$\{4,5\}$ . Draw a transition diagram to display the two separate chains. Can
any state in one subchain be reached from any state in the other?
 Check the convergence as in part (a) of
[link] . What happens
to the state probabilities for states 6 and 7 in the long run? What does thatsignify for these states? Can these states be reached from any state in either
of the subchains? How would you classify these states?
Increasing power
P
^{n} show the probability of being in states 6, 7 go to zero.
These states cannot be reached from any of the other states.

The transition matrix
P for a homogeneous Markov chain is as follows (in
mfile
npr16_09.m ):
$$P=\left[\begin{array}{ccccccc}0.1& 0.2& 0.1& 0.3& 0.2& 0& 0.1\\ 0& 0.6& 0& 0& 0& 0& 0.4\\ 0& 0& 0.2& 0.5& 0& 0.3& 0\\ 0& 0& 0.6& 0.1& 0& 0.3& 0\\ 0.2& 0.2& 0.1& 0.2& 0& 0.1& 0.2\\ 0& 0& 0.2& 0.7& 0& 0.1& 0\\ 0& 0.5& 0& 0& 0& 0& 0.5\end{array}\right]$$
 Check the transition matrix
P for convergence, as in part (a) of
[link] . How many steps does it take to reach convergence to four or more
decimal places? Does this agree with the theoretical result?
 Examine the long run transition matrix. Identify transient states.
 The convergence does not make all rows the same. Note, however, that
there are two subgroups of similar rows. Rearrange rows and columns in the longrun Matrix so that identical rows are grouped. This suggests subchains. Rearrange
the rows and columns in the transition matrix
P and see that this gives a
pattern similar to that for the matrix in
[link] . Raise the rearranged
transition matrix to the power for convergence.
Examination of
P
^{16} suggests sets
$\{2,7\}$ and
$\{3,4,6\}$ of states
form subchains. Rearrangement of
P may be done as follows:
PA = P([2 7 3 4 6 1 5], [2 7 3 4 6 1 5])
PA =0.6000 0.4000 0 0 0 0 0

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
