Computational techniques based on ranks of Hankel matrices is used to study the convergence to Arnold tongues. It appears that the process of convergence to the phaselocked mode is far from being trivial. The stable, the unstable and the manifold of nonasymptotic convergence intertwine in the parameter plane of the circle map. Pseudoranks of Hankel matrices carry important physical information about transient processes taking place in discrete nonlinear iterative maps. These pictures in the parameter plane are also beautiful from the aesthetical point of view.
