Stability of nonlinear impulsive stochastic systems with Markovian switching under generalized average dwell time condition

  • 74 Accesses

  • 3 Citations


This paper examines the p-th moment globally asymptotic stability in probability and p-th moment stochastic input-to-state stability for a type of impulsive stochastic system withMarkovian switching. By applying the generalized average dwell time approach, some novel sufficient conditions are obtained to ensure these stability properties. Furthermore, the coefficient of the Lyapunov function is allowed to be time-varying, which generalizes and improves the existing results. As corollaries, nonlinear restrictions on the drift and diffusion coefficients are used as substitutes for some previous conditions. Two examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
