Probably the best approach is to pose the question "can the dynamics of the time
series be described by a finite number of phase space variables ?".  An
excellent discussion of this is given in Tom Mullin's book "The Nature of Chaos"
ISBN 0 19 853990 8 Oxford University Press.  Chapter 7 "Distinguishing noise
from chaos" by Holton and May is particularly apposite and uses the above to
look at various examples, using the method of delay.  Easy enough to code into
