Chaos synchronization is often characterized by the existence of a continuous function between the states of the components. However, in coupled systems without inherent symmetries, the synchronization set can be extremely complicated. We describe and illustrate three typical complications that can arise, and we discuss how existing methods for detecting synchronization will be hampered by the presence of these features.
