    We consider the problem of stabilizing a discrete-time nonlinear system using a feedback which is not necessarily smooth. A sufficient condition for global dynamical stabilizability of single-input triangular systems is given. We obtain conditions expressed in terms of distributions for the nonsmooth feedback triangularization and linearization of discrete-time systems. Relations between stabilization and linearization of discrete-time systems are given.
