jagguy asked on # markov chain sequence

In markov chain you have a transition matrix and initial state.

It is easy to work out the probability on the nth event but what about a sequence of events .

the 1st column .75 is prob a day is wet today given it was wet yesterday .

the 1st column .7 is prob a day is not wet given it was not wet yesterday .

t= .75 .3

.25 .7

what is the probability of a at least 2 days being wet out of the next 3 if it was wet yesterday.

using a markov chain how do i do this?

Start from the state of it was wet yesterday and then work out all the possible final states for the next 3 days (you should have 8 of them). Now find the paths that have 2 or more wet days and add up the probabilities.

ok so what is the answer and the s0 matrix as it goes along?
