Stochastic Stability for Uncertain Neutral Markovian Jump Systems with Nonlinear Perturbations

  • Xinghua Liu
  • Hongsheng Xi


The delay-range-dependent stochastic stability for uncertain neutral Markovian jump systems with interval time-varying delays and nonlinear perturbations is investigated. The perturbations under consideration are time-varying and norm-bounded. By delay interval dividing, a novel augmented Lyapunov functional which contains triple-integral terms to reduce the conservativeness is introduced. Based on the Lyapunov functional approach and the nature of convex combination, some improved delay-range-dependent stochastic stability criteria are obtained in terms of linear matrix inequalities without introducing any free-weighting matrices. Finally, numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the developed techniques.
