In this report, the underlying concepts for the period-doubling route to chaos are presented, and the scope of recent research in a variety of physical systems is briefly noted. Then European research investigating chaotic behavior in nonlinear, driven electrical circuits is discussed in detail. These circuits--really nonlinear analog computers which solve the differential equations describing idealized physical systems--represent a bridge between the simple and highly abstract deterministic models and the experiments where complicating and competing effects can obscure the universal behavior.
