We consider a Markov chain whose phase space is a d-dimensional torus. A point x jumps to x+ω with probability p(x) and to x−ω with probability 1−p(x). For Diophantine ω and smooth p we prove that this Markov chain has an absolutely continuous invariant measure and the distribution of any point after n steps converges to this measure.
