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… 

Non-smooth dynamical systems and applications

The purpose of this work is to illuminate some of the non-smooth phenomena found in piecewise-smooth continuous and discrete dynamical systems, which do not occur in smooth systems. We will explain

Coexistence of attractors and effects of noise on coupled piecewise maps

The synchronization transition in coupled piecewise map lattices is studied. The average order parameter is calculated to diagnose synchronization of coupled piecewise maps. As a result, it shows

An overview of the current state of the art in the analysis of discontinuity-induced bifurcations of piecewise smooth dynamical systems, with particular attention to those methodologies that can be applied to generic n-dimensional systems.

Bifurcation Analysis of an Ecological System with State-Dependent Feedback Control and Periodic Forcing

By assuming a periodic variation in the intrinsic growth rate of the prey, a nonlinear ecological system with periodic forcing and state-dependent feedback control is proposed. The main purpose of

Event-Selected Vector Field Discontinuities Yield Piecewise-Differentiable Flows

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.

Cascades of Periodic Solutions in a Neural Circuit With Delays and Slow-Fast Dynamics

The periodic states reported here - emergent behaviours in the model - can be linked to known phenomena in auditory perception that are beyond the original scope of the model’s design.

Hidden dynamics for piecewise smooth maps

We develop a hidden dynamics formulation of regularisation for piecewise smooth maps. This involves blowing up the discontinuity into an interval, but in contrast to piecewise smooth flows every

Conjugacy Problem of Strictly Monotone Maps with Only One Jump Discontinuity

The conjugacy problem is one of the important questions in iteration theory. As far as we know, for discontinuous strictly monotone maps there is no complete result. In this paper, we investigate the

Resonant periodic solutions in regularized impact oscillator



Dynamics of a piecewise linear map with a gap

In this paper, we consider periodic solutions of discontinuous non-smooth maps. We show how the fixed points of a general piecewise linear map with a discontinuity (‘a map with a gap’) behave under

Corner bifurcations in non-smoothly forced impact oscillators

Codimension-three bifurcations: explanation of the complex one-, two-, and three-dimensional bifurcation structures in nonsmooth maps.

A type of codimension-three bifurcation is detected which serves as the organizing center of periodic and aperiodic dynamics in the parameter space of physical and engineering systems.

Border-Collision bifurcations in One-Dimensional Discontinuous Maps

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.

Bifurcations in impact oscillations

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.

Universal limit mapping in grazing bifurcations

Grazing bifurcations are nonsmooth bifurcations that occur in impacting mechanical oscillators. A sign of the lack of smoothness is a square root expression that arises in mappings describing the

Discontinuity geometry for an impact oscillator

We use methods of singularity theory to classify the local geometry of the discontinuity set, together with associated local dynamics, for a discrete dynamical system that represents a natural class

Mappings of grazing-impact oscillators

Impacting systems are found in a great variety of mechanical constructions and they are intrinsically nonlinear. In this paper it is shown how near-grazing systems, i.e. systems in which the impacts

Chaotic behavior in piecewise continuous difference equations

A class of piecewise continuous mappings with positive slope, mapping the unit interval into itself is studied. Families of 1-1 mappings depending on some parameter have periodic orbits for most
