Abstract : "This paper considers the problem of the global finite-time stabilization for the high-order nonlinear systems
with unknown control directions. Due to the uncertainty of control directions, the paper analyzes all possible
conditions of the directions. The Lyapunov-based logic switching rule ensures that we can find the correct control
directions. The adaptive switching controller with a switching parameter which is to be tuned online guarantees that
the derivative of Lyapunov function is less than a negative definite function and the closed-loop system is globally
finite-time stable. The effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated by an example."
