Suppose I have 2 Markov processes with transition kernels Q_1(y|x) and Q_2(y|x). Suppose i also have Lyapunov functions V_1, V_2 for these processes w.r.t. a common set, i.e. there exists a compact set S such that for x outside S, the drift of the respective Lyapunov function is bounded above by a negative number for both the processes.
Now suppose I construct a new Markov processes by using Q_1 kernel at odd times and Q_2 kernel at even times. Can I guarantee stability of this new process in the set S i.e. can I construct a Lyapunov function for this third process on set S such that the drift of the Lyapunov function is negative outside the set S?
