The R- transformation will be R2 (by Z). This will turn a to b; P’s i will turn to k; so the states a and i have changed determinately to b and k. The argument can now be repeated. With P at k, the R-transformation will again (by Z) be R2 ; so b will turn (under R2 ) to a, and k will turn (under P) to i. This happens to bring the whole system back to the initial state of (a,i), so the whole will evidently go on indefinitely round this cycle. 3/5 and recognise that the state of the whole machine is simply a vector with two components (x,y), where x is one of a, b, c, d and y is one of i, j, k.
