Numerous physical systems with two competing frequencies exhibit frequency locking and chaos associated with quasiperiodicity. In this paper we review certain universal aspects of the quasiperiodic route to chaos by making use of the standard circle map. Particular attention is paid to the golden mean and silver mean with a view to comparison with experimental work.
