As a simple model system of oscillatory media under an external periodic forcing, a coupled network of sine-circle maps was numerically investigated. Stable periodic and quasiperiodic spiral waves were shown to exist in a sine-circle coupled map lattice. Numerous patterns, which included quasiperiodic spiral waves, periodic, banded spiral waves in several different polygonal shapes, and domain patterns, were observed.
