The area preserving maps of Chapter 3 have given us a clear picture of the complex behavior in conservative systems as they undergo a transition to chaos. These maps, however, are somewhat special. For example, the whisker map describes the stochastic layer in the separatrix region of the Duffing oscillator, the standard map describes a small neighborhood of the stochastic layer, and the quadratic maps describe the neighborhood of isolated islands in these maps.
