See the title.

At a technical level the talk shows how to compute the solution of a two dimensional linear map where one of the coefficients is a dichotomous random number (to be less imprecise: how to compute the exponential growth rate). Models of this type are the simplest, almost trivial, case of a dynamical system with random delay time. The results contribute at some superficial level to the understanding of time delayed feedback control.

FOOTNOTE: The scientific content of the talk has to be attributed to G√ľnter Radons. He showed me the model and the computation of Lyapunov exponents (without this footnote I would certainly share the fate of the German Secretary of State for Defence).
