Summary: An algorithm is proposed for determining the periodic behavior of the common driver of a system of nonautonomous difference equations from observations of the equation trajectories only. Methods of attractor reconstruction are used to build a semiconjugacy to a topological version of the driver system. The algorithm is described in detail and implemented on several examples.
