### Some articles on finite time, time, finite:

Sliding Mode Control - Sliding Mode Observer
... of the estimator error dynamics to zero in finite time ... the estimator error for a single estimated state is brought to zero in finite time, and after that time the other estimator errors decay exponentially to zero ... systems can be built that brings the estimation error for all estimated states to zero in a finite (and arbitrarily small) time ...
Mathematical Singularity - Finite-time Singularity
... A finite-time singularity occurs when one input variable is time, and an output variable increases towards infinite at a finite time ... Mathematically the simplest finite-time singularities are power laws for various exponents, of which the simplest is hyperbolic growth, where the exponent is (negative) 1 More precisely, in ... bounces becomes infinite as the ball comes to rest in a finite time ...
Sliding Mode Control - Theoretical Foundation - Theorem 1: Existence of Sliding Mode - Reachability: Attaining Sliding Manifold in Finite Time
... To ensure that the sliding mode is attained in finite time, must be more strongly bounded away from zero ... To ensure that the sliding mode is entered in finite time, where and are constants ... Moreover, because, must reach in finite time, which means that must reach (i.e ...

### Famous quotes containing the words time and/or finite:

Time past and time future
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

For it is only the finite that has wrought and suffered; the infinite lies stretched in smiling repose.
