The delay-dependent stochastic stability problem of Markovian jump systems with time-varying delays is investigated in this paper. Though the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is general and simple, less conservative results are derived by using the convex combination method, improved Wirtinger’s integral inequality, and a slack condition on Lyapunov matrix. The obtained results are formulated in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Numerical examples are provided to verify the effectiveness and superiority of the presented results.
