In this paper we show the homoclinic bifurcations which are
involved in some contact bifurcations of basins of attraction in
noninvertible two-dimensional map. That is, we are interested in
the link between contact bifurcations of a chaotic area and
homoclinic bifurcations of a saddle point or of an expanding fixed
point located on the boundary of the basin of attraction of the
chaotic area. We shall analyze the particular
case of a map having up to three distinct preimages, and the
basins’s bifurcations are investigated by use of the technique
of critical curves.
