Non-autonomous oscillatory systems with stable amplitudes and time-varying frequencies have often been treated as stochastic, inappropriately. We therefore formulate them as a new class and discuss how they generate complex behaviour. We show how to extract the underlying dynamics, and we demonstrate that it is simple and deterministic, thus paving the way for a diversity of new systems to be recognized as deterministic. They include complex and non-autonomous oscillatory
systems in nature, both individually and in ensembles and networks.
