In this work the triple pendulum with damping, external forcing and with impacts is investigated. The extension of a coefficient restitution rule and a special transition condition rule for perturbation (linearized system in the Lyapunov exponents algorithm) in each discontinuity point are applied. Periodic, quasi-periodic, chaotic and hyperchaotic motions are observed using Poincaré maps and bifurcational diagrams, which are verified by the Lyapunov exponents. In additon basins of attraction of some coexisting regular and irregular attractors are illustrated and discussed.
