The finite-time control problem is addressed for uncertain time-varying descriptor system with finite jumps and time-varying norm-bounded disturbance. Firstly, a sufficient condition of finite-time boundedness for the abovementioned class of system is obtained. Then the result is extended to finite-time for the system. Based on the condition, state feedback controller is designed such that the closed-loop system is finite-time boundedness and satisfies gain. The conditions are given in terms of differential linear matrix inequalities (DLMIs) and linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), and such conditions require the solution of a feasibility problem involving DLMIs and LMIs, which can be solved by using existing linear algorithms. Finally, a numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the method.
