Abstract

We study noise-induced escape within a discrete dynamical system that has two co-existing chaotic attractors in phase space separated by a locally disconnected fractal basin boundary. It is shown that escape occurs via a unique accessible point on the fractal boundary. The structure of escape paths is determined by the original saddles forming the homoclinic structure of the system and by their hierarchical interrelations.
