... This theory focuses on solving the problem that how and why a dynamic system becomes unstable under the continuous changes with the influence of one or more parameters (Thom, 1972;Wang et al., 2017). Catastrophe Theory can find out the inherent instability in a nonlinear dynamical system (Diks and Wang, 2016), and it has been proven to be a successful tool to investigate the qualitative properties in many fields, e.g., in physics (Berry, 1976;Holmes and Rand, 1976;Poston and Stewart, 1978), in biology (Zeeman, 1974;Bazin and Saunders, 1979), in social sciences (Zeeman, 1976a;Zeeman, 1976b), in engineering and technology (Henley, 1976;John and Brain, 1976), in railway system safety (Wang et al., 2017;Huang et al., 2019b), in traffic flow analysis (Acha-Daza and Hall, 1994) and so on. ...
