Conditions for Fixed-Time Stability and Stabilization of Continuous Autonomous Systems

Abstract : This work presents Lyapunov analysis conditions for fixed-time stability, a property where all the system's trajectories converge exactly to zero in a finite amount of time that is independent of the system's initial condition. Necessary and sufficient conditions for fixed-time stability without taking into account the regularity of the settling-time function are presented first. Next, a characterization for fixed-time stability with continuous settling-time function is introduced. A particular form of the characterizing functions follows, it allows to establish more constructive conditions and in order to obtain a converse result, the concept of complete fixed-time stability is introduced. A set of academic examples and an example of allocation of mobile agents illustrate the given concepts. Finally, a sufficient condition for fixed-time stabilization of nonlinear affine systems is obtained.
