discovered the coexistence of multiple attractors and crisis route to chaos in a chaotic jerk circuit [27] and a simple autonomous jerk oscillator with multiple attractors was introduced in [28], Kengne et al.
Nevertheless, Sprott's chaotic jerk circuit studied in this paper obeys the physics laws and its parameters a and b are chosen accordingly.
