Let f be an homeomorphismPlanetmathPlanetmath mapping a topological spaceMathworldPlanetmath X to itself or a flow on X. An heteroclinic point, or heteroclinic intersection, is a point that belongs to the intersection of the stable setPlanetmathPlanetmath of x with the unstable set of y, where x and y are two different fixed or periodic points of f, i.e. a point that belongs to Ws(f,x)Wu(f,y).
