In this paper we are concerned with the definition and some properties of the discontinuous dynamical systems generated by piecewise constant arguments. Then we study a discontinuous dynamical system of the Riccati type equation as an example. The local stability at the fixed points is studied. The bifurcation analysis and chaos are discussed. In addition, we compare our results with the discrete dynamical system of the Riccati type equation.
