Construction of special (chaotic) attractors for various design demands has drawn much attention recently. This paper studies the generation of a family of spherical and circular quasi-periodic/chaotic attractors from simple switched nonlinear systems. Controllers are designed for manipulating the sizes or shapes of islands and bridges in such circular attractors. The underlying mechanism of generating these attractors from the switched systems is investigated. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
