### Abstract

We prove that when subjected to periodic forcing of the form $$p-{\mu ,\rho ,\omega } (t) = \mu (\rho h(x,y) + \sin (\omega t)),$$ certain two-dimensional vector fields with dissipative homoclinic loops generate strange attractors with Sinai-Ruelle-Bowen measures for a set of forcing parameters (μ, ρ, ω) of positive Lebesgue measure. The proof extends ideas of Afraimovich and Shilnikov and applies the recent theory of rank 1 maps developed by Wang and Young. We prove a general theorem and then apply this theorem to an explicit model: a forced Duffing equation of the form $${{d^2 q} \over {dt^2 }} + (\lambda - \gamma q^2){{dq} \over {dt}} - q + q^3 = \mu \sin (\omega t).$$

N2 - We prove that when subjected to periodic forcing of the form $$p-{\mu ,\rho ,\omega } (t) = \mu (\rho h(x,y) + \sin (\omega t)),$$ certain two-dimensional vector fields with dissipative homoclinic loops generate strange attractors with Sinai-Ruelle-Bowen measures for a set of forcing parameters (μ, ρ, ω) of positive Lebesgue measure. The proof extends ideas of Afraimovich and Shilnikov and applies the recent theory of rank 1 maps developed by Wang and Young. We prove a general theorem and then apply this theorem to an explicit model: a forced Duffing equation of the form $${{d^2 q} \over {dt^2 }} + (\lambda - \gamma q^2){{dq} \over {dt}} - q + q^3 = \mu \sin (\omega t).$$
