some math problems1. A point is always at 0, 1, or 2. At each step, the point moves 1 unit, either up or down. If the point is at 1, it moves to either 0 or 2 with equal probability. However, if the point is at 2, it must move to 1 with its next step. Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #2 20130814 04:04:59
Re: some math problemsHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130814 08:55:14
Re: some math problemsI don't really know what is an absorbing Markov chain. Do you have a way to solve it using only algebra and combinations? Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #4 20130814 11:12:53

Re: some math problemsThe AOPS is somewhat advanced and does require a knowledge of lots of math. Why are you doing it as an 8th grader, if I may ask? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20130815 02:54:52
