### How to maximize the steady state transition probability for a state in a Markov chain by altering that state's outgoing transition probabilities?

Let's say we have a transition matrix of which can be solved to come up with steady state transition probabilities of Alpha: 34.9% Beta: 24.0% Gamma: 16.9% Delta: 24.2% Now, imagine Alpha, Beta, ...
