For an arbitrary subset A of the finite state space S of a Markov chain the so-called embedded matrix P_A is introduced. By use of these matrices formulas expressing recurrence probabilities can be written down almost automatically and derivations can be given very systematically. Keywords: finite Markov chain, embedded matrix.
