The transition matrix for a Markov process is given by

S t a t e 1 2 T = S t a t e S t a t e 1 2 [ 1 2 3 4 1 2 1 4 ]

and the initial-state distribution vector is given by

X 0 = S t a t e S t a t e 1 2 [ 1 3 2 3 ]

Find T X 0 and interpret your result with the aid of a tree diagram.

To determine

To find:

The probability distribution of the system after one observation, given by TX0.

Explanation of Solution

Approach:

TX0 represents the probability distribution of the system after one observation, where T represents the transition matrix and X0 represents the initial-state distribution vector.

Calculation:

Given that,

T=[12341214] and X0=[1323].

Then,

TX0=[12341214][1323]=[
