This thesis proposes a novel method for locating a p-dimensional invariant torus of an n-dimensional map. A set of non-linear equations is formulated and solved using the Newton-Raphson scheme. The method requires a set of sampled points on a guess invariant torus. An interpolant is passed through these points to compute the pointwise shift on the invariant torus, which is used to formulate the equation of invariance for the torus under the given map. The principal application of this method is to locate invariant tori of continuous systems. These tori occur for continuous dynamical systems having quasiperiodic orbits in state space. The discretization of the continuous system in terms of a map is accomplished in terms of its flow function. Results for one-dimensional invariant tori in two and three-dimensional state space and for two-dimensional invariant tori in three and four-dimensional maps are presented.
