Switching from Chaos to Synchronization

Synchronization in a non-linear dissipative system is a scenario where the dynamics after a transient follows a limit cycle (simple attractor). More generally the steady state can be a strange at attractor that features a fractal dimension. On the other hand we have the hamiltonian case, no transients involved, which is prototyped by the "standard map", where synchronization reflects the emergence of non-linear resonances. We would like to consider a quench or a sweep process that leads from the latter to the former.
