invariant set. Some limiting conditions on a critical point of a planar vector eld are obtained
to be an isolated invariant set. As a result, the existence of innitely many homoclinic orbits for
a critical point with the Poincare index greater than one is shown.https://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_3080_b7d97ad9e3f8d55dbdc72e09d86c28ff.pdf
