From the reviews:"This book is on the estimation and control of linear continuous-time stochastic systems with jump Markov parameters and additive Wiener processes. ... The book is suitable for introducing jump Markov systems theory to graduate students and practitioners with an appropriately advanced background in linear systems, state space control, probability and random processes. Since it has many of the significant control and estimation results in this field, it can also be used as a versatile reference source by researchers in this field."
