This paper proposes a methodology for stabilization of nonlinear discrete-time systems exhibiting bifurcation phenomena under input constraints. The new stabilizing control law is a combination of a bounded feedback chaotification law and a bounded local stabilization law. The proposed control scheme is applied to the control of pathological rhythm in a cardiac model that undergoes a period-doubling bifurcation into alternans.
