Abstract. The aim of this paper is to present a novel type of chaos observed in a four dimensional singularly perturbed system. The chaotic behaviour is described both numerically and analytically. We show the existence of a new type of strange attractor reminiscent of a chaotic behaviour for a fast-slow system. Related to this we demonstrate that there is am invariant attracting region overlapping the jump manifolds of the fast system. This canonical problem was identi ed to be a coupled problem of two Hopf bifurcations with the fast jump process. We derive a geometric model where we can rigorously show the existence of chaotic orbits.
