Short Paper


This paper investigates the finite-time stability (FTS) of a special class of hybrid systems, namely homogeneous impulsive positive systems of degree one. By using max-separable Lyapunov functions together with average impulsive interval method, a sufficient FTS criterion is obtained for homogeneous impulsive positive systems of degree one. It should be noted that it’s the first time that the FTS result for homogeneous impulsive positive systems of degree one is given. Finally, some numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the presented theoretical results.
