This paper studies the stabilizability and stabilization of continuous-time systems in the
presence of stochastic multiplicative uncertainties. The authors consider multi-input, multi-output
(MIMO) linear time-invariant systems subject to multiple static, structured stochastic uncertainties,
and seek to derive fundamental conditions to ensure that a system can be stabilized under a mean-square
criterion. In the stochastic control framework, this problem can be considered as one of optimal control
under state- or input-dependent random noises, while in the networked control setting, a problem of
networked feedback stabilization over lossy communication channels. The authors adopt a mean-square
small gain analysis approach, and obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for a system to be meansquare
stabilizable via output feedback. For single-input, single-output (SISO) systems, the condition
provides an analytical bound, demonstrating explicitly how plant unstable poles, nonminimum phase
zeros, and time delay may impose a limit on the uncertainty variance required for mean-square stabilization.
For MIMO minimum phase systems with possible delays, the condition amounts to solving a
generalized eigenvalue problem, readily solvable using linear matrix inequality optimization techniques.
