Hello, lsk91!

The Markov process is designated by: .1. Cody, Ray, and Amanda are kicking a soccerball.

Cody always kicks to Ray, and Ray always kicks to Amanda,

but Amanda is equally likely to kick the ball to either Cody or Ray.

Find the stable-state vector and tell what it means.

The steady-state vector is: .

. . where: .

We have: .

. . . . . . .

Solve the system: .

After alarge number of consecutive kicks,very

. . there are the probabilities of who has the ball.
