property GPCCA.absorption_probabilities: Optional[cellrank.tl._lineage.Lineage]

Absorption probabilities.

Informally, given a (finite, discrete) Markov chain with a set of transient states $$T$$ and a set of absorbing states $$A$$, the absorption probability for cell $$i$$ from $$T$$ to reach cell $$j$$ from $$R$$ is the probability that a random walk initialized in $$i$$ will reach absorbing state $$j$$.

In our context, states correspond to cells, in particular, absorbing states correspond to cells in terminal states.
