In this article, we show that the well-known Helmert matrix has strong relationship with stochastic matrices in modern probability theory. In fact, we show that we can construct some stochastic matrices by the Helmert matrix. Hence, we introduce a new class of regular and doubly stochastic matrices by use of the Helmert matrix and a special diagonal matrix that is defined in this article. Afterwards, we obtain the stationary distribution for this new class of stochastic matrices.
