Interesting discontinuity induced bifurcations occur when limit sets of the flow/map intersect the discontinuity set

Why are we interested in them?

• Lots of important physical systems are piecewise-smooth: bouncing balls, Newton’s cradle, friction, rattle, switching, control systems, DC-DC converters, gear boxes …

• Piecewise-smooth systems have behaviour which is quite different from smooth systems and is induced by the discontinuity: period adding

• Much of this behaviour can be analysed, and new forms of discontinuity induced bifurcations can be studied: border collisions, grazing bifurcations, corner collisions.

Will illustrate the behaviour of piecewise smooth systems by looking at

• Maps

• Hybrid impacting systems

Map [Nordmark] also arises naturally in the study of grazing in flows and hybrid systems.

If A has complex eigenvalues we see discontinuous transitions between periodic orbits

If A has real eigenvalues we see similar behaviour to the 1D map

orbit

Local analysis of a Poincare map associated with a grazing periodic orbit shows that this map has a locally square-root form, hence the observed period-adding and similar behaviour

Poincare map associated with a grazing periodic orbit of a piecewise-smooth flow typically is smoother (eg. Locally order 3/2 or higher) giving more regular behaviour

Systems of impacting oscillators can have even more exotic behaviour which arises when there are multiple collisions. This can be described by looking at the behaviour of the discontinuous maps

CONCLUSIONS

• Piecewise-smooth systems have interesting dynamics

• Some (but not all) of this dynamics can be understood and analysed

• Many applications and much still to be discovered
