Broer, Henk (ed.) et al., Handbook of dynamical systems. Volume 3. Amsterdam: Elsevier (ISBN 978-0-444-53141-4/hbk; 978-0-444-63821-2/pbk; 978-0-08-093226-2/ebook). 379-524 (2010).
The goal of this paper is to review the existing literature on homoclinic and heteroclinic bifurcation theory for flows. More specifically, the authors focus on bifurcations from homoclinic and heteroclinic orbits between equilibria in autonomous ordinary differential equations \(\dot{u}=f(u,\mu)\), where \((u,\mu)\in\mathbb{R}^{n}\times\mathbb{R}^{m}\) and \(t\in\mathbb{R}\).
