Strange nonchaotic attractors are attractors that are geometrically strange, but have nonpositive Lyapunov exponents. We show that for dynamical systems with an invariant subspace in which there is a quasiperiodic torus, the loss of the transverse stability of the torus can lead to the birth of a strange nonchaotic attractor. A physical phenomenon accompanying this route to strange nonchaotic attractors is an extreme type of intermittency.
