a) Let $C_{k}$ be the column vector with the assets of the Americas, Asia, and Europe at the beginning of year $k$. Find the transition matrix $T$ that gives the amount in year $k+1: C_{k+1}=T C_{k}$
b) Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of $T$.
c) Find the limiting distribution of the $\ 4$ trillion as the world ends
d) Find the distribution of the $\ 4$ trillion at year $k$.
