Paper Abstract

In this paper we attempt to give an affirmative answer to the title question. In addition, we present results showing that nonlinear oscillators forced at two incommensurate frequencies can exhibit a variety of novel dynamical phenomena, including two-frequency quasi- periodicity, three-frequency quasi-periodicity, chaos and in particular, strange nonchaotic attractors.
