Hi, I am writing a program to calculate the probability of state transition from a specific transient state to all absorbing states.

Does anyone have experience in absorbing markov chains, i have couple of queries to ask.

main question is how to scale a matrix to nxn.. If anyone can provide a detailed walkthrough on how to solve one, id be grateful. Examples online are too detailed and im having difficulty grasping it. I know matrix operations and linear algebra but this is out of my field of work.

This guy worked on a 4x4 matrix with 2 transition states and 2 absorbing states. Im having difficulty scaling this up. If I scale it up to say 6, with 2 transition and 4 absorbing states, Im having a problem where we have to substract 2 matrices of different dimensions to calculate F. Thats not possible !
