# The Dynamics of Regularized Discontinuous Maps with Applications to Impacting Systems

@article{Pring2010TheDO, title={The Dynamics of Regularized Discontinuous Maps with Applications to Impacting Systems}, author={S. R. Pring and Chris J. Budd}, journal={SIAM J. Appl. Dyn. Syst.}, year={2010}, volume={9}, pages={188-219} }

One-dimensional piecewise-smooth discontinuous maps (maps with gaps) are known to have surprisingly rich dynamics, including periodic orbits with very high period and bifurcation diagrams showing period-adding or period-incrementing behavior. In this paper we study a new class of maps, which we refer to as regularized one-dimensional discontinuous maps, because they give very similar dynamics to discontinuous maps and closely approximate them, yet are continuous. We show that regularized…

A class of discontinuous vector fields brought to the authors' attention by multilegged animal locomotion is studied, and it is shown that the flow is locally conjugate (via a piecewise--differentiable homeomorphism) to a well--defined flow that is Lipschitz continuous.

This work presents a classification of border-collision bifurcations in one-dimensional discontinuous maps depending on the parameters of the piecewise linear approximation in the neighborhood of the point of discontinuity, and derives the condition of existence and stability of various periodic orbits and of chaos.

Numerical evidence is presented which suggests that discontinuous bifurcations in models of impact oscillators using an instantaneous impact law are just the limits (in some sense) of standard bifURcations of smooth dynamical systems as the impact is hardened.
