In this paper we set up a mathematical structure,
called Markov string, to obtaining a very general class of models for stochastic hybrid systems. Markov Strings are, in fact, a class of Markov processes, obtained by a
mixing mechanism of stochastic processes, introduced
by Meyer. We prove that Markov strings are strong Markov processes with the cadlag property. We then show how a very general class of stochastic hybrid processes can be embedded
in the framework of Markov strings. This class, which
is referred to as the General Stochastic Hybrid Systems (GSHS), includes as special cases all the classes of stochastic hybrid processes, proposed in the literature.
