    In this paper, we give new characterizations of the stochastic reachability problem for stochastic hybrid systems in the language of different theories that can be employed in studying stochastic processes (Markov processes, potential theory, optimal control). These characterizations are further used to obtain the probabilities involved in the context of stochastic reachability as viscosity solutions of some variational inequalities.
