# Markov chain whose state space is the unit circle

I have another problem from Koralov-Sinai that I don't know how to do and I would appreciate help please. It goes like this:

5.16. Consider a Markov chain whose state space is the unit circle. Let the density of the transition function $P(x,dy)$ be given by $p(x,y) = \frac{1}{2 \epsilon}$ if the angle $(y,x) < \epsilon$ and $0$ otherwise. Find the stationary distribution.

Thank you all!

The definite article is a giveaway -- if there's only one stationary distribution and the transition function exhibits rotational symmetry, what would you expect regarding the symmetry properties of the stationary distribution? – joriki Nov 6 '12 at 2:56
can you post a complete answer please? I'm struggling with the concepts... – Dquik Nov 6 '12 at 3:33
I'm assuming you mean we get a reversible distribution... but I don't see how to prove it – Dquik Nov 6 '12 at 16:55
I'm still lost with this; can anyone help? – Dquik Nov 7 '12 at 5:32

The rotationally invariant density $p(\phi)=(2\pi)^{-1}$ for the angle $\phi$ is stationary because the transition density exhibits rotational symmetry,
why $2/\pi$ and not $1 / 2\pi$? – Dquik Nov 7 '12 at 9:33
