Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im studying Markov sources at the moment and i have dificulty in solving and understanding one type of exercise.

Exercise:

We have a binary markov source which generates the following chain of symbols.

0010111001010111100001010011

It asks me to find p(0/0,0), p(0/0,1)..... p(1/0,0), p(1/0,1).

All i know is that we have 26 possibilities, but i cant understand how to "read" them.

Like, p(1/0,1)=p(1,0/0,1) would be 010??? But if is it like this how can i find p(0/0,1)=p(0,0/0,1) because i cant write it in the same way with 3 symbols.

One thing i have in my mind is that i find p(1/0,1) and then p(0/0,1) would be 1-p(1/0,1).

I hope you understand what i mean, english is not my first language :D and please help me if you can.

Thanks,

Drao
