Stability of Discrete-Time Systems with Stochastically Delayed Feedback
This paper investigates the stability of linear systems with stochastic delay in discrete time. Stability of the mean and second moment of the non-deterministic system is determined by a set of deterministic discrete-time equations with distributed delay. A theorem is provided that guarantees convergence of the state with convergence of the second moment, assuming that delays are identically independently distributed. The theorem is applied to a scalar equation where the stability of the equilibrium is determined.
