Abstract

We show that the geometrical (Berry) phases discovered in Hamiltonian systems can also be defined as resulting from parallel transportation of vectors for nonlinear dissipative systems with cyclic attractors. If the nonlinear dissipative systems possess a certain kind of asymptotic solution defined in this Letter, the phase and amplitude accumulation of a geometrical type can be defined. Detuned one- and two-photon lasers showing periodic intensity pulsations are taken as examples of such systems.
