Abstract

In this paper we study recurrence plots (RPs) for the simplest example of nontrivial recurrences, namely in the case of a quasiperiodic motion. This case can be still studied analytically and constitutes a link between simple periodic and more complicated chaotic dynamics. Since we deal with nontrivial recurrences, the size of the neighborhood ¿ to which the trajectory must recur, is larger than zero. This leads to a nonzero width of the lines, which we determine analytically for both periodic and quasiperiodic motion. The understanding of such microscopic structures is important for choosing an appropriate threshold ¿ to analyze experimental data by means of RPs.
