In this paper, we address the (uniform) finite-time input-to-state stability problem for switched nonlinear systems. We prove that a switched nonlinear system has a useful finite-time input-to-state stability property under average dwell-time switching signals if each constituent subsystem has finite-time input-to-state stability. Moreover, we prove the equivalence between the optimal costs for the switched nonlinear systems and for the relaxed differential inclusion.
