BASIN BOUNDARY 1)2)
The set of points that defines the outer limit of a basin of attraction
The crossing of this boundary due to some perturbation knocks the system out of the basin and either sends it into some other basin corresponding to another attractor or readily destroys it.
However, according to R. THOM, the basins relative to two attractors can penetrate each other in a topologically complicated way, with a quite undeterminate outcome (1972).
