In an earlier paper, the authors introduced the notion of safety control of stochastic discrete event systems (DESs), modeled as controlled Markov chains. Safety was specified as an upper bound on the components of the state probability distribution, and the class of irreducible and aperiodic Markov chains were analyzed relative to this safety criterion… CONTINUE READING
