Hello Oliver,
Thanks for your suggestion.
Unfortunately, a smoothing function would not be useful, since the
system has binary states.
I figured a way to do this is to include the f[x] function into the
x'[t] equation such as
x'[t] == f[x[t]] + Sin[t]
(f[x] has only two states and no smoothing)
and use NDSolve to solve for x[t]. This works. And then I can evaluate
f[x[t]] using the NDSolve solution.
Just to summarize this discussion: NDSolve does not support binary
variables as part of the state?
