I will describe a family of maps of the torus that, starting from Anosov, reaches the boundary of hyperbolicity and crosses into the elliptic region at a point. Although the system is unrealistically simple, it exhibits considerable complexity and is a good test for any approach to the study of systems at the boundary of hyperbolicity.
