This paper describes the structure of solutions to Kolmogorov's equations for nonhomogeneous jump Markov processes and applications of these results to control of jump stochastic systems. These equations were studied by Feller (1940), who clarified in 1945 in the errata to that paper that some of its results covered only nonexplosive Markov processes. In this work, which is largely of a survey nature, the case of explosive processes is also considered. This paper is based on the invited talk
