Absorbing Markov Chains † A state si of a Markov chain is called absorbing if it is impossible to leave it (i.e., pii = 1). † A Markov chain is absorbing if it has at least one absorbing state, and if from every state it is possible to go to an absorbing state (not necessarily in one step).

Markov Chains or Processes • Sequence of trial with a constant transition matrix P • No memory (P does not change, we do not know whether or how many times P has already been applied) 6 A Markov process has n states if there are n possible outcomes. In this case each state matrix has n entries, that is each state matrix is a 1 x n matrix.
