Finite-time stability concerns the boundness of system during a fixed finite-time interval. For switched systems, finite-time stability property can be affected significantly by switching behavior; however, it was neglected by most previous research. In this paper, the problems of finite-time stability analysis and stabilization for switched nonlinear discrete-time systems are addressed. First, sufficient conditions are given to ensure a class of switched nonlinear discrete-time system subjected to norm bounded disturbance finite-time bounded under arbitrary switching, and then the results are extended to H ∞ finite-time boundness of switched nonlinear discrete-time systems. Finally based on the results on finite-time boundness, the state feedback controller is designed to H∞ finite-time stabilize a switched nonlinear discrete-time system. A numerical design example is given to illustrate the proposed results within this paper.
