A new topological technique for characterizing homoclinic tangles

Abstract

We develop a topological approach, called homotopic lobe dynamics, for describing the qualitative structure of homoclinic tangles. This approach begins from an efficient and accurate description of the initial development of a tangle, up to some finite number of iterates J , where the value of J indicates the amount of information that one puts into the… (More)
