Transport in Quasiperiodically Forced Systems: Dynamics Generated by Sequences of Maps
In this chapter we will study transport in two-dimensional vector fields having a quasiperiodic time dependence (note: quasiperiodicity will be precisely defined shortly). In generalizing the time dependence of the vector fields from the periodic case many new difficulties arise, both conceptual and technical. We now want to examine these difficulties in the context of a general discussion of the construction of discrete time maps from the trajectories of time-dependent vector fields.
