The probability that tomorrow is dry is 8/10 if today is dry, and 4/10 if today is wet. The probability that tomorrow is wet is 2/10 if today is dry, and 6/10 if today is wet. a) Write down the transition matrix P for the above Markov process. Show that the matrix is stochastic. b) What is the distribution of wet and dry days in the long run? 7 Prove 2 of the following statements (do the remaining one for extra credit): a) If A and B are square matrices and AB is invertible, then both A and B are invertible. b) If A and B are n n matrices of rank n, then AB has rank n. c) If R is a matrix in echelon form, then a basis for row(A) consists of the nonzero rows of R. ...
