, prove that the process {X(t)} and {Y(t)} are jointly wide-sense stationary.

Markov Chains and Markov Processes Question 4.

having three states 1, 2 and 3 is

with the initial distribution is

Question 6.

A house wife buys three kinds of cereals: A, B, C. She never buys the same cereal on successive weeks. If she buys cereal A, then the next week she buys cereal B. However, if she buys B or C, then next week she is three times as likely to buy A as the other brand. Find the transition matrix. In the long run, how often she buys each of three brands?

Question 7.

A salesman’s territory consists of three cities. A, B, C. He never sells

in the same city on successive days. If he sells in city A, then the next day he sells in city B. However, if he sells in either B or C, then the next day he is twice as likely to sell in city A as in the other city. In the long run how often does he sell in each of the cities?

Question 8.

A fair die is tossed repeatedly. If X

n

denote the maximum of the numbers occurring in the first n tosses, find the transition probability matrix P of the Markov chain {X

n

}. Also find and .

Question 9.

Three children (denoted by 1, 2, 3) arranged in a circle play a game of throwing a ball to one another. At each stage the child having the ball is equally likely to throw the ball to any one of the other two children. Suppose that X

0

denotes the child who had the ball initially and denotes the child who had the ball after n throws. Find P. Calculate

Question 10.

A grocer stocks his store with three types of detergents A, B and C. When brand A is sold out the probability is 0.7 that he stocks up with brand A again. When he sells out brand B, the probability is 0.8 that he will stock up again with brand B. Finally when he sells out brand C, the probability is 0.6 that he will stock up with brand C again. When he switches to another detergent he does so with equal probability for the remaining two brands. Find the transition matrix. In the long run how does he stock up with detergents?
