This model has 3 states {0(active), 1(dead), 2(retired)} and transition rates Write down the Q matrix. (b) Let the transition probabilities be poo(t), po1(t), po2(t). Use the Kolmogorov's For-ward Equation and write down the equations for the transition probabilities. (c) Find solutions for the equations given in (b).
