The control of jump linear systems (JLS) which are linear differential equations is analyzed. Major JLS-research efforts concern pure-Markov JLS (MJLS). The results are obtained by a stochastic stopping time construct and stochastic dynamic programming. The method is demonstrated to yield, convergent, parsimonious control laws for Semi-Markov JLS (SMJLS) for a variety of sojourn-time distributions.
