In general, a PH distribution is the distribution of the time
until absorption into state 0 in a Markov chain.
A three-phase PH distribution.
Figure 2.7 illustrates a three phase PH distribution
Note that the initial state can be the absorption state (state 0) with
positive probability. If the initial state is the absorption state,
the absorption time is zero.
