We show that in the mutual synchronization of periodic oscillators, besides an attracting torus, there is also a saddle torus that plays an equally important role. We demonstrate that the saddle and stable tori form an elegant structure, allowing for a variety of phenomena, both known and new, related to the origin and evolution of coexisting synchronous regimes (phase multistability).
