Recent discoveries in
nonlinear dynamics have made it desirable to investigate various dynamical
systems for evidence of
chaotic behavior. An analysis of the RV Tauri variable R Scuti is presented,
indications of chaos. The input data consisted of a set of times and magnitudes
maximum and minimum
brightness, derived from AAVSO observations of the star.
