This monograph investigates the existence of higher order sliding mode in discrete-time systems and propounds a new concept of discrete-time higher order sliding mode. The authors propose a definition of discrete-time higher order sliding mode and a control law is designed by means of a concept for an uncertain linear-time invariant system, as well as the behavior of the closed-loop system is analyzed. Moreover, the book includes a thorough treatment of the probabilistic and non-deterministic case, i.e. stochastic discrete-time higher order sliding mode. The target audience primarily comprises research experts in control theory but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students alike.
