This paper addresses the robust stability for a class of linear discrete-time stochastic systems with convex polytopic uncertainties. The system to be considered is subject to both interval time-varying delays and convex polytopic type uncertainties. Based on the augmented parameter-dependent Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, new delay-dependent conditions for the robust stability are established in terms of linear matrix inequalities. An application to robust stabilization of linear discrete-time stochastic control systems is given. Numerical examples are included to illustrate the effectiveness of our results.
