The paper considers a higher-order sliding mode dynamics design in a class of single-input linear systems having the invertible system matrix. The proposed sliding manifold selection method simultaneously provides a necessary relative degree of the sliding variable for a specific sliding mode order and the desired system dynamics after establishing that sliding mode. It is shown that the found unique solution satisfies these requirements. The theoretically obtained result is validated through a numerical example and illustrated by digital simulations.
