The Competitive Modes Conjecture is a relatively new approach in the field of Dynamical Systems, aiming to understand chaos in strange attractors using Resonance Theory. Up till now, the Conjecture has only been used to study multipolynomial systems because of their simplicity. As such, the study of non-multipolynomial systems is sparse, filled with ambiguity, and lacks mathematical structure. This paper strives to rectify this dilemma, providing the mathematical background needed to rigorously apply the Competitive Modes Conjecture to a certain set of non-multipolynomial systems. Afterwards, we provide an example of this new theory in the non-multipolynomial Wimol-Banlue Attractor, something that up to this point has not been possible as far as the authors know.
