The problem is in the attachment, but I'll try and rewrite it...

Suppose for a Markov Chain with two states, we get the following results.

1. If P0=[0 1] then P1=[.4 .6]

2. If P0=[4/11 7/11] then P0=P1=P2=...and so on.

With this information, find the transition matrix of the Markov process.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm a bit confused here. The second part means that P0=[4/11 7/11] never changes, so the transition matrix does nothing and it is a stable vector, but doesn't the transition matrix have to do something because it in #1 it changes the matrix from P0 to P1?

So... T * [4/11 7/11]=[4/11 7/11] and T*[0 1]=[.4 .6]

Any help would be great.
