# Non-smooth pitchfork bifurcations

• The bifurcations of strange nonchaotic attractors in quasi-periodically forced systems are poorly understood. A simple two-parameter example is introduced which unifies previous observations of non-smooth pitchfork bifurcations and blowout bifurcations of strange nonchaotic attractors. The corresponding bifurcation curves can be calculated analytically. The example shows how these bifurcations are organized around a codimension two point in parameter space.
