# Markov property

I disagree with removing X_0 = i from the expectation in the first step of the following:

& = \sum_{j \in I} P(X_1 = j | X_0 = i) E(H^A | X_0 = i, X_1 = j) \\

& = \sum_{j \in I} p_{ij} E(H^A | X_1 = j) \quad \textrm{(by the Markov property)}\\

& = \sum_{j \in I} p_{ij} (1 + k_j^A)\\

It throws away the information that X_0 \notin A, which is relevant for the next rewrite step. The expected value of H^A clearly depends on what we know about X_0 and X_1.
