    • Abstract

       

      In recent years, it is observed that the third-order explicit autonomous differential equation, named as jerk equation, represents an interesting sub-class of dynamical systems that can exhibit many major features of the regular and chaotic motion. In this paper, we investigate the global dynamics of a special family of jerk systems {ie075-01}, whereG(x) is a non-linear function, which are known to exhibit chaotic behaviour at some parameter values. We particularly identify the regions of parameter space with different asymptotic dynamics using some analytical methods as well as extensive Lyapunov spectra calculation in complete parameter space. We also investigate the effect of weakening as well as strengthening of the non-linearity in theG(x) function on the global dynamics of these jerk dynamical systems. As a result, we reach to an important conclusion for these jerk dynamical systems that a certain amount of non-linearity is sufficient for exhibiting chaotic behaviour but increasing the non-linearity does not lead to larger regions of parameter space exhibiting chaos.
