The exponential stability of neutral Markovian jump systems with interval mode-dependent time-varying delays, nonlinear perturbations, and partially known transition rates is investigated. A novel augmented stochastic Lyapunov functional is constructed, which employs the improved bounding technique and contains triple-integral terms to reduce conservativeness; then the delay-range-dependent and rate-dependent exponential stability criteria are developed by Lyapunov stability theory, reciprocally convex lemma, and free-weighting matrices. The corresponding results are extended to the uncertain case. Finally, numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
