Proof. 11) is stable if and only if there exists positive definite matrix P such that A˜T P A˜ − P < 0.

The existence condition of a linear sliding surface for systems with mismatched uncertainties was given in [25], [26], [100], but their methods cannot be applied to systems with time-delay. In [161], a new robust stability criterion for uncertain time-delay systems is given and the SMC is proved to be applicable. There, due to use of matrix norm, the result is more or less conservative and complicated which leads to inconvenience in designing the sliding surface for uncertain time-delay systems.

According to the theory of switched systems [172], we have the following result. 5. 1) with time-varying delay τ (k) is stable if there exists a positive definite matrix P ∈ R(¯τ +1)n×(¯τ +1)n such that the following linear inequalities hold for any i ∈ {0, 1, · · · , τ¯}: A¯Ti P A¯i − P < 0.
