Assuming that the chaotic time history of a single variable in a differential equation possessing a strange attractor can be represented as a random superposition of deterministic structures, we predict the power spectral density. We justify the assumption for perturbations of nonlinear Hamiltonian oscillators ans compare our predictions with computations on versions of Duffings equation.
