Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A class of nonlinear uncertain mechanical systems with the Coriolis term, is considered. Since these systems generally do not satisfy the bounded-input-bounded-state property, a global sliding-mode observer with theoretically exact finite-time convergence using dissipative properties, is proposed.
