We investigate the state-feedback stabilization problem for a class of stochastic feedforward nonlinear time-delay systems. By using the homogeneous domination approach and choosing an appropriate Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, the delay-independent state-feedback controller is explicitly constructed such that the closed-loop system is globally asymptotically stable in probability. A simulation example is provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design method.
