## Attractors of Quasiperiodically Forced SystemsThis book discusses the influence of quasiperiodic force on dynamical system. With this type of forcing, different types of attractors are possible, for example, strange nonchaotic attractors which have some unusual properties.The main part of this book is based on the authors' recent works, but it also presents the results which are the combined achievements of many investigators. |
