The problem of th mean exponential stability and stabilizability of a class of stochastic nonlinear and bilinear hybrid systems with unstable and stable subsystems is considered. Sufficient conditions for the th mean exponential stability and stabilizability under a feedback control and stabilizing switching rules are derived. A method for the construction of stabilizing switching rules based on the Lyapunov technique and the knowledge of regions of decreasing the Lyapunov functions for subsystems is given. Two cases, including single Lyapunov function and a a single Lyapunov-like function, are discussed. Obtained results are illustrated by examples.
