Further Curiosities of Hidden Dynamics

Sections  4.3 and  7.3 introduced us to complex sliding modes as non-trivial attractors in the switching layer. The complexity arose due to non-idealities of the implementation, but it can also occur in ideal piecewise-smooth models due to hidden terms creating non-trivial sliding attractors. We give a brief overview here of a few examples presented in [82].
