1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data P = c1*V1 + c2*V2 Where P, V1, and V2, are equal sized matrices 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So what this problem amounts to is me trying to find the steady state of Markov matrix. So I solved for the eigen vectors, and as is my understanding I should be able to solve for my initial condition matrix P as a linear combination of some constant and the eigen vectors. I'm doing this all in MATLAB and I can't seem to figure out how to plug that equation into MATLAB. I know that it should be possible to solve for these constants(C1,C2) by hand, but I'd like to be able to do this for large matrices. Any suggestions?
