Stock 1 always sells for \$10 or \$20. If stock 1 is selling for \$10 today, there is a .80 chance that it will sell for \$10 for tomorrow. If it is selling for \$20 today, there is a .90 chance that it will sell for \$20 tomorrow. Stock 2 always sells for \$10 or \$25. If stock 2 sells today for \$10 there is a .90 chance that it will sell tomorrow for \$10. If it sells today for \$25, there is a .85 chance that it will sell tomorrow for \$25. Let X n denote the price of the 1st stock and Y n denote the price of the 2nd stock during the n th day. Assume that { X n : n 0 } and { Y n : n 0 } are discrete time Markov chains. (a) What is the transition matrix for { X n : n 0 } ? Is { X n : n 0 } irreducible? (b) What is the transition matrix for { Y n : n 0 } ? Is { Y n : n 0 } irreducible? (c) What is the stationary distribution of
