# Absorbing Markov chain

In the mathematical theory of probability, an absorbing Markov chain is a Markov chain in which every state can reach an absorbing state. An absorbing state is a state that, once entered, cannot be left. Like general Markov chains, there can be continuous-time absorbing Markov chains with an infinite state space. However, this article concentrates on the discrete-time discrete-state-space case. (Wikipedia).

In this exercise we use the absorbing equations for Markov Chains, to solve a simple game between two players. The Zoom connection was not very stable, hence there are a few audio problems. Sorry.
