We propose an archetypal system to investigate transitions from smooth to discontinuous dynamics. In the smooth regime, the system bears significant similarities to the Duffing oscillator, exhibiting the standard dynamics governed by the hyperbolic structure associated with the stationary state of the double well. At the discontinuous limit, however, there(More)
In this paper, we investigate the nonlinear behavior of the recently proposed rotating pendulum which is a cylindrically nonlinear system with irrational type having smooth and discontinuous characteristics depending on the value of a smoothness parameter. We introduce a cylindrical approximate system whose analytical solutions can be obtained successfully(More)
