The local stability and existence of periodic motions in a periodically forced oscillator with multiple discontinuities are investigated. The complexity of periodic motions and chaos in such a discontinuous system is often caused by the passability, sliding, and grazing of flows to discontinuous boundaries. Therefore, the corresponding analytical conditions for such singular phenomena to discontinuous boundary are presented from the local singularity theory of discontinuous systems. To develop the mapping structures of periodic motions, basic mappings are introduced, and the sliding motion on the discontinuous boundary is described by a sliding mapping. A generalized mapping structure is presented for all possible periodic motions, and the local stability and bifurcations of periodic motions are discussed. From mapping structures, the switching points of periodic motions on the boundaries are predicted analytically. Two periodic motions are presented for illustrations of the passability, sliding, and grazing of periodic motions on the boundary.
