Tuki <kalebrave@gmail.com>:
You need to give full refs to those papers if you want good help.
I guess you estimated a non-ergodic transition matrix, and you want
the nearest ergodic matrix in some metric?
Are you sure you don't want a regular transition matrix, to ensure
convergence to a unique steady state?
You may want to write out a maximum likelihood estimator that
constrains eigenvalues.
