    • Abstract

       

      This work studies a forced generalised Liénard oscillator with $\phi^{8}$ potential with order 8 dissipation. The fixed points and their stability have been analysed for autonomous and non-dissipative Liénard oscillator. The system can exhibit three, five or seven fixed points and the corresponding stability diagram is checked and analysed. The effect of restoring parameters on the potential is also studied. Periodic, multiperiodic and chaotic monostable and bistable attractors and their coexistence have been checked through the bifurcation diagram, Lyapunov exponent, phase space and Poincaré section using the fourth-order Runge–Kutta algorithm. The results obtained by the analytical methods are validated and complemented by the numerical simulations.
