This paper is concerned with the problem of finite-time stabilization for a class of high-order nonlinear systems with zero dynamic. As a significant feature, the systems considered suffer from both the unmeasurable dynamic uncertainties and inherent nonlinearities, including high-order and low-order nonlinear growth rates. On the basis of integral Lyapunov functions equipped with sign functions and the notion of input-to-state stability, a partial state feedback stabilizer is proposed to provide a faster finite-time state convergence compared to traditional finite-time one. The novelty of this paper lies in a distinct perspective to applying the concept of fast finite-time stability developed recently in partial state feedback control design, which has been previously regarded as a rather difficult problem.
