The aim of this work is to study discontinuous one-dimensional maps in the case of slopes and offsets having opposite signs. Such models represent the dynamics of applied systems in several disciplines. We analyze in particular attracting cycles, their border collision bifurcations and the properties of the periodicity regions in the parameter space. The(More)
In this paper we consider a continuous one-dimensional map, which is linear on one side of a generic kink point and hyperbolic on the other side. This kind of map is widely used in the applied context. Due to the simple expression of the two functions involved, in particular cases it is possible to determine analytically the border collision bifurcation(More)
In this work we consider the border collision bifurcations occurring in a one-dimensional piece-wise linear map with two discontinuity points. The map, motivated by an economic application, is written in a generic form and considered in the stable regime, with all slopes between zero and one. We prove that the period adding structures occur in maps with(More)
In this paper we consider a discontinuous one-dimensional piecewise linear model describing a neoclassical growth model. These kind of maps are widely used in the applied context. We determine the analytical expressions of border collision bifurcation curves, responsible for the observed dynamics, which consists of attracting cycles of any period and of(More)
In this work we investigate the dynamics of a one-dimensional piecewise smooth map, which represents the model of a chaos generator circuit. In a particular (symmetric) case analytic results can be given showing that the chaotic region is wide and robust. In the general model only the border collision bifurcation can be analytically determined. However, the(More)
