In this paper, a general framework that provides sufficient conditions for asymptotic stabilization of underactuated nonlinear systems using an optimal sliding mode control in the presence of system uncertainties is presented. A performance objective is used to optimally select the parameters of the sliding mode control surfaces subject to state and input constraints. It is shown that the closed-loop system trajectories reach the optimal sliding surfaces in finite time and a constructive methodology to determine exponential stability of the closed-loop system on the sliding surfaces is developed which ensures asymptotic stability of the overall closed-loop system. The framework further provides the basis to determine an estimate of the domain of attraction for the closed-loop system with uncertainties. The results developed in this work are experimentally validated using a linear inverted pendulum testbed which show a good match between the actual domain of attraction of the upward equilibrium state and its analytical estimate.
