We generalize the Aubry-Mather theorem on the existence of quasi-periodic solutions of one dimensional difference equations to situations in which the independent variable ranges over more complicated lattices. This is a natural generalization of Frenkel-Kontorova models to physical situations in a higher dimensional space. We also consider generalizations in which the interactions among the particles are not just nearest neighbor, and indeed do not have finite range.
