We show the existence of strange nonchaotic repellers—that is, systems with transient dynamics whose nonattracting invariant set is fractal, but whose maximum Lyapunov coefficient is zero. We introduce the concept using a simple one-dimensional map and argue that strange nonchaotic repellers are a general phenomenon, occurring in bifurcation points of transient chaotic systems. All strange nonchaotic systems studied to date have been attractors; here, it is revealed that strange nonchaotic sets are also present in transient systems.
