,
where 0 < α < 1 and 0 < β < 1.
(a). Specify all values of α so that P is a transition matrix of some Markov Chain.
(b). Specify communicating classes of the Markov chain in (a).
(c). Determine recurrent and transient classes of the Markov chain in (a).
(d). Provide the probability P (X5 = 2 | X0 = 4).

2. 2 marks for each question.
Let {Xn, n ≥ 0} be a branching process with offspring ξ10 having the distribution:
P (ξ10 = 0) = α and P (ξ10 = 2) = 1− α.
(a) Find all α so that the offspring variance σ2 is greater than the offspring mean
µ.
(b) Suppose that X0 = 1 and σ
2 > µ. Find the extinction probability q.
(c) Suppose that X0 = 1. Find all α so that the extinction probability q = 1/2.
