This paper deals with the finite-time stability and H control of linear discrete-time delay systems. The system under consideration is subject to interval time-varying delay and norm-bounded disturbances. Linear matrix inequality approach is used to solve the finite-time stability problem. First, new sufficient conditions are established for robust finite-time stability of the linear discrete-time delay system with norm-bounded disturbances, then the state feedback controller is designed to robustly finite-time stabilize the system and guarantee an adequate level of system performance. The delay-dependent sufficient conditions are formulated in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed results.
