I have a graph where from each node the state can change randomly from one node to some of the other nodes. My task is to estimate how long the state will stay within a subset of all these nodes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there a way to characterize the network with some parameters to find the answer (maybe for a specific subset)?

Maybe averaging over node going out of this set or determining some fractal stuff or so?
