    Abstract

    In this paper we investigate the stability in distribution for a class of stochastic functional differential equations (SFDEs), which include stochastic differential delay equations (SDDEs). Although stability in distribution has been studied by several authors recently, there is so far no stability-in-distribution criterion on SFDEs where the terms involved the delay components are highly nonlinear (not bounded by linear functions). In this paper we will establish the sufficient criteria on the stability in distribution for a class of highly nonlinear SFDEs. Two examples will be given to illustrate our new results. We also explain the reason why the existing stability-in-distribution criteria are not applicable by these two examples.
