## Abstract

Let $f:M\to M$ be a diffeomorphism on a ${C}^{\mathrm{\infty}}$ *n*-dimensional manifold. Let ${C}_{f}(p)$ be the chain component of *f* associated to a hyperbolic periodic point *p*. In this paper, we show that (i) if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on the chain recurrent set $\mathcal{R}(f)$, then *f* satisfies both Axiom A and no-cycle condition, and (ii) if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$, then ${C}_{f}(p)$ is hyperbolic.

## 1 Introduction

Let *M* be a closed ${C}^{\mathrm{\infty}}$ *n*-dimensional manifold, and let $Diff(M)$ be the space of diffeomorphisms of *M* endowed with the ${C}^{1}$-topology. Denote by *d* the distance on *M* induced from a Riemannian metric $\parallel \cdot \parallel $ on the tangent bundle *TM*. Let $f\in Diff(M)$. For $\delta >0$, a sequence of points ${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i=a}^{b}$ ($-\mathrm{\infty}\le a<b\le \mathrm{\infty}$) in *M* is called a *δ*-*pseudo-orbit* of *f* if $d(f({x}_{i}),{x}_{i+1})<\delta $ for all $a\le i\le b-1$. Let $\mathrm{\Lambda}\subset M$ be a closed *f*-invariant set. We say that *f* has the *shadowing property* on Λ (or Λ is *orbitally shadowable*) if for every $\u03f5>0$, there is $\delta >0$ such that for any *δ*-pseudo-orbit ${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i=a}^{b}\subset \mathrm{\Lambda}$ of *f* ($-\mathrm{\infty}\le a<b\le \mathrm{\infty}$), there is a point $y\in M$ such that $d({f}^{i}(y),{x}_{i})<\u03f5$ for all $a\le i\le b-1$. It is easy to see that *f* has the shadowing property on Λ if and only if ${f}^{n}$ has the shadowing property on Λ for $n\in \mathbb{Z}\setminus \{0\}$. The notion of pseudo-orbits often appears in several methods of the modern theory of a dynamical system. Moreover, the shadowing property plays an important role in the investigation of stability theory and ergodic theory. Actually, in [1, 2], the authors showed that every *f* satisfying both Axiom A and the strong transversality condition has the shadowing property. Since such a system is structurally stable, there is a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* such that every $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$ has the shadowing property because *f* satisfies both Axiom A and the strong transversality condition. And in [3], Sakai proved that if there is a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f*, for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, *g* has the shadowing property, then *f* satisfies both Axiom A and the strong transversality condition.

*f*through

*x*; that is, ${\mathcal{O}}_{f}(x)=\{{f}^{n}(x):n\in \mathbb{Z}\}$. We say that

*f*has the

*orbital shadowing property*on Λ (or Λ is

*orbitally shadowable*) if for any $\u03f5>0$, there exists $\delta >0$ such that for any

*δ*-pseudo-orbit $\xi ={\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i\in \mathbb{Z}}\subset \mathrm{\Lambda}$, we can find a point $y\in M$ such that

where ${B}_{\u03f5}(A)$ denotes the *ϵ*-neighborhood of a set $A\subset M$. *f* is said to have the *weak shadowing property* on Λ (or Λ is *weakly shadowable*) if for any $\u03f5>0$, there exists $\delta >0$ such that for any *δ*-pseudo-orbit $\xi ={\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i\in \mathbb{Z}}\subset \mathrm{\Lambda}$, there is a point $y\in M$ such that $\xi \subset {B}_{\u03f5}({\mathcal{O}}_{f}(y))$.

*ξ*and the point ${f}^{i}(y)$ of an exact orbit ${\mathcal{O}}_{f}(y)$ to be close ‘at any time moment’; instead, the sets of the points of

*ξ*and ${\mathcal{O}}_{f}(y)$ are required to be close. The weak showing property is a slightly weak version of the orbital shadowing property. The difference is that a set of points of a ‘sufficiently precise’ pseudo-orbit

*ξ*is required to be contained in a small neighborhood of some exact orbit ${\mathcal{O}}_{f}(y)$. We say that Λ is

*locally maximal*if there is a compact neighborhood

*U*of Λ such that

It is easy to see that *f* has the orbital shadowing property on Λ if and only if ${f}^{n}$ has the orbital shadowing property on Λ for $n\in \mathbb{Z}\setminus \{0\}$.

Now we introduce the notion of the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on Λ. We say that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property* on Λ if there are a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* and a compact neighborhood *U* of Λ such that (i) $\mathrm{\Lambda}={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{f}^{n}(U)$ (locally maximal), (ii) for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, *g* has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$, where ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)$ is the *continuation* of Λ. We say that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property if $\mathrm{\Lambda}=M$ in the above definition. It is known that if any structurally stable diffeomorphism *f* has a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f*, then for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, *g* has the shadowing property, hence *g* has the orbital shadowing property. In [4], the authors showed that if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property, then *f* satisfies both Axiom A and the strong transversality condition. Thus we can restate the above facts as follows.

**Theorem 1.1** [4]

*Let* $f:M\to M$ *be a diffeomorphism*. *f* *has the* ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property if and only if* *f* *is structurally stable*.

For any $x,y\in M$, we write $x\u21ddy$ if for any $\delta >0$, there is a *δ*-pseudo orbit ${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i={a}_{\delta}}^{{b}_{\delta}}$ (${a}_{\delta}<{b}_{\delta}$) of *f* such that ${x}_{{a}_{\delta}}=x$ and ${x}_{{b}_{\delta}}=y$. The set of points $\{x\in M:x\u21ddx\}$ is called the *chain recurrent set* of *f* and is denoted by $\mathcal{R}(f)$. It is well known that $\mathcal{R}(f)$ is a closed and *f*-invariant set. If we denote the set of periodic points of *f* by $P(f)$, then $P(f)\subset \mathrm{\Omega}(f)\subset \mathcal{R}(f)$. Here $\mathrm{\Omega}(f)$ is the non-wandering set of *f*. We write $x\leftrightsquigarrow y$ if $x\u21ddy$ and $y\u21ddx$. The relation ↭ induces on $\mathcal{R}(f)$ an equivalence relation, whose classes are called *chain components* of *f*. Note that by [5], the map $f\mapsto \mathcal{R}(f)$ is upper semi-continuous. From the fact, we will show the following result.

**Theorem 1.2** *Let* $\mathcal{R}(f)$ *be the chain recurrent set of* *f*. *f* *has the* ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property on* $\mathcal{R}(f)$ *if and only if* *f* *satisfies Axiom* A *and the no*-*cycle condition*.

Let *f* be an Axiom A diffeomorphism. Then, it is well known that $\mathrm{\Omega}(f)=\mathcal{R}(f)$ if and only if *f* satisfies the no-cycle condition. Hence, *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$ and is characterized as the Ω-stability of the system by Theorem 1.2.

*hyperbolic*for

*f*if the tangent bundle ${T}_{\mathrm{\Lambda}}M$ has a

*Df*-invariant splitting ${E}^{s}\oplus {E}^{u}$ and there exist constants $C>0$ and $0<\lambda <1$ such that

for all $x\in \mathrm{\Lambda}$ and $n\ge 0$. If $\mathrm{\Lambda}=M$, then *f* is *Anosov*.

*U*of

*p*such that for all $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, there is a unique hyperbolic periodic point ${p}_{g}\in U$ of

*g*with the same period as

*p*and $index({p}_{g})=index(p)$. Here $index(p)=dim{E}_{p}^{s}$, and the point ${p}_{g}$ is called the

*continuation*of

*p*. The stable manifold ${W}^{s}(p)$ and the unstable manifold ${W}^{u}(p)$ are defined as follows. It is well known that if

*p*is a hyperbolic periodic point of

*f*with period

*k*, then the sets

are ${C}^{1}$-injectively immersed submanifolds of *M*.

Denote by ${C}_{f}(p)$ the chain component of *f* containing *p*. If *p* is a sink or source periodic point, then ${C}_{f}(p)$ is a periodic orbit itself. Therefore, in this paper, we may assume that all periodic points are the saddle type. Let $q\in P(f)$. We say that *p* and *q* are *homoclinic related*, and write $p\sim q$ if ${W}^{s}(p)\u22d4{W}^{u}(q)\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$, and ${W}^{u}(p)\u22d4{W}^{s}(q)\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$. It is clear that if $p\sim q$ then $index(p)=index(q)$.

Denote by ${H}_{f}(p)$ the homoclinic points associated with *p*, that is, ${H}_{f}(p)=\{x\in M:x\in {W}^{s}(p)\cap {W}^{u}(q)\}$, and let ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)$ be the transverse homoclinic points associated with *p*, that is, ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)=\{x\in M:x\in {W}^{s}(p)\u22d4{W}^{u}(p)\}$. Obviously, ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)$ and ${H}_{f}(p)$ are closed *f*-invariant sets, and it is clear that ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)\subset {H}_{f}(p)$. Note that by Smale’s transverse homoclinic point theorem, ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)$ coincides with the closure of the set of all $q\in P(f)$ such that $p\sim q$. It is known that ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)$ is a transitive set, and if ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)$ is not hyperbolic, then it may contain periodic points having different indices. Note that ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)\subset {H}_{f}(p)\subset {C}_{f}(p)$ (see [[6], examples and counter examples]). For the chain component ${C}_{f}(p)$, Lee, Moriyasu and Sakai [7] showed that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$ if and only if the chain component ${C}_{f}(p)$ is a hyperbolic homoclinic class of *p*. From the fact, we consider the orbital shadowing property and the chain component. The following result is the main theorem in this paper.

**Theorem 1.3** *Let* *p* *be a hyperbolic periodic point of* *f*, *and let* ${C}_{f}(p)$ *be the chain component of* *f* *containing* *p*. *f* *has the* ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property on* ${C}_{f}(p)$ *if and only if* ${C}_{f}(p)$ *is the hyperbolic homoclinic class of* *p*.

If ${C}_{f}(p)$ is hyperbolic, then it is locally maximal, that is, there is a compact neighborhood *U* of ${C}_{f}(p)$ such that ${\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{f}^{n}(U)={C}_{f}(p)$. By the local stability of a hyperbolic set, there is a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* such that for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$ is hyperbolic. Then we know that *g* has the shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}$, and so *g* has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)$. Thus we get the ‘if’ part. Thus, we need to show that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$, then ${C}_{f}(p)={H}_{f}^{T}(p)$ is hyperbolic.

## 2 Proof of Theorem 1.2

Let *M* be as before, and for $\u03f5>0$, we denote by ${B}_{\u03f5}(A)$ the closed *ϵ*-ball $\{x\in M:d(x,A)\le \u03f5\}$ of a subset *A* of *M*.

**Proposition 2.1** *Let* $f\in Diff(M)$. *Suppose that* *f* *has the* ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property on* $\mathcal{R}(f)$. *Then* *f* *satisfies Axiom* A *and the no*-*cycle condition*.

Denote by $\mathcal{H}(M)$ the set of homeomorphisms of *M*. For the proof of the following lemma, see [5].

**Lemma 2.2** *Let* $f\in \mathcal{H}(M)$, *and let* $\mathcal{R}(f)$ *be the chain recurrent set of* *f*. *For any* $\u03f5>0$, *there is* $\delta >0$ *such that if* ${\rho}_{0}(f,g)<\delta $ ($g\in \mathcal{H}(M)$), *then* $\mathcal{R}(g)\subset {B}_{\u03f5}(\mathcal{R}(f))$.

The following Franks’ lemma will play essential roles in our proofs.

**Lemma 2.3** [8]

*Let* $\mathcal{U}(f)$ *be any given* ${C}^{1}$-*neighborhood of* *f*. *Then there exist* $\u03f5>0$ *and a* ${C}^{1}$-*neighborhood* ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)\subset \mathcal{U}(f)$ *of* *f* *such that for given* $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$, *a finite set* $\{{x}_{1},{x}_{2},\dots ,{x}_{N}\}$, *a neighborhood* *U* *of* $\{{x}_{1},{x}_{2},\dots ,{x}_{N}\}$ *and linear maps* ${L}_{i}:{T}_{{x}_{i}}M\to {T}_{g({x}_{i})}M$ *satisfying* $\parallel {L}_{i}-{D}_{{x}_{i}}g\parallel \le \u03f5$ *for all* $1\le i\le N$, *there exists* $\stackrel{\u02c6}{g}\in \mathcal{U}(f)$ *such that* $\stackrel{\u02c6}{g}(x)=g(x)$ *if* $x\in \{{x}_{1},{x}_{2},\dots ,{x}_{N}\}\cup (M\setminus U)$ *and* ${D}_{{x}_{i}}\stackrel{\u02c6}{g}={L}_{i}$ *for all* $1\le i\le N$.

*f*with the property that every $p\in P(g)$ ($g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$) is hyperbolic. It is proved by Hayashi [9] that $f\in \mathfrak{F}(M)$ if and only if

*f*satisfies both Axiom A and the no-cycle condition. Let $\mathrm{\Lambda}\subset M$ be an invariant submanifold of

*f*. We say that Λ is

*normally hyperbolic*if there is a splitting ${T}_{\mathrm{\Lambda}}M=T\mathrm{\Lambda}\oplus {N}^{s}\oplus {N}^{u}$ such that

- (a)
the splitting depends continuously on $x\in \mathrm{\Lambda}$,

- (b)
${D}_{x}f({N}_{x}^{\sigma})={N}_{f(x)}^{\sigma}$ ($\sigma =s,u$) for all $x\in \mathrm{\Lambda}$,

- (c)there are constants $C>0$ and $\lambda \in (0,1)$ such that for every triple of unit vectors $v\in {T}_{x}\mathrm{\Lambda}$, ${v}^{s}\in {N}_{x}^{s}$ and ${v}^{u}\in {N}_{x}^{u}$ ($x\in \mathrm{\Lambda}$), we have$\frac{\parallel {D}_{x}{f}^{n}({v}^{s})\parallel}{\parallel {D}_{x}{f}^{n}(v)\parallel}\le C{\lambda}^{n}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\text{and}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\frac{\parallel {D}_{x}{f}^{n}({v}^{u})\parallel}{\parallel {D}_{x}{f}^{n}(v)\parallel}\ge {C}^{-1}{\lambda}^{-n}$

for all $n\ge 0$.

*Proof of Proposition 2.1* First we suppose that *f* satisfies both Axiom A and the no-cycle condition. Then $\mathcal{R}(f)=\mathrm{\Omega}(f)=\overline{P(f)}$ is hyperbolic, and so $\mathcal{R}(f)$ is locally maximal. By the stability of locally maximal hyperbolic sets, we can choose a compact neighborhood *U* of $\mathcal{R}(f)$ and a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* such that $\mathcal{R}(f)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{f}^{n}(U)$, and for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$ is hyperbolic for *g*. Since $\mathcal{R}(f)$ is hyperbolic for *f*, *f* has the shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$, and so *f* has the orbital shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$. Thus, we know that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$. Finally, we show that if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$, then *f* satisfies both Axiom A and the no-cycle condition. From the above facts, to complete the proof of the theorem, it is enough to show that if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$, then $f\in \mathfrak{F}(M)$.

*f*has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(f)$. Then there are a compact neighborhood

*U*of $\mathcal{R}(f)$ and a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of

*f*such that for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$,

*g*has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$, where ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$ is the continuation of Λ. Choose $\u03f5>0$ satisfying ${B}_{\u03f5}(\mathcal{R}(f))\subset U$. By Lemma 2.2, there is $\delta >0$ such that if ${\rho}_{1}(f,g)<\delta $ for $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, then

where ${\rho}_{1}$ is the usual ${C}^{1}$-metric on $Diff(M)$. Put ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)=\{g\in \mathcal{U}(f):{\rho}_{1}(f,g)<\delta \}$. Then for each $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$, $\mathcal{R}(g)\subset U$ and so $\mathcal{R}(g)\subset {g}^{n}(U)$ for all $n\in \mathbb{Z}$. This means that $\mathcal{R}(g)\subset {\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)={\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)$ for $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$. Since *g* has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)$, *g* has the orbital shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(g)$.

*f*which is given by Lemma 2.3 with respect to ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$. Let $p\in P(f)$, and let

*k*be the period of

*p*. Let

where ${E}^{\sigma}(p)$, $\sigma =c,s,u$, are ${D}_{p}{f}^{k}$-invariant subspaces corresponding to eigenvalues *λ* of ${D}_{p}{f}^{k}$ for $|\lambda |=1$, $|\lambda |<1$ and $|\lambda |>1$, respectively. It is sufficient to show that each $p\in P(f)$ is hyperbolic. Suppose this is not true. Then there exist eigenvalues ${\lambda}_{1},\dots ,{\lambda}_{c}$ of ${D}_{p}{f}^{k}$ with $|{\lambda}_{j}|=1$ or ${\lambda}_{j}={e}^{i{\theta}_{j}}$, $j=1,2,\dots ,c$. Let ${\mathcal{U}}_{{\u03f5}_{0}}(f)\subset \tilde{U}(f)$ be the ${C}^{1}$ ${\u03f5}_{0}$-ball of *f*. Set $C={sup}_{x\in M}\{\parallel {D}_{x}f\parallel \}$. For $0<{\u03f5}_{1}<{\u03f5}_{0}$, we can obtain a linear automorphism $\mathcal{O}:{T}_{p}M\to {T}_{p}M$ such that

(a.i) $\parallel \mathcal{O}-\mathit{id}\parallel <\frac{{\u03f5}_{1}}{C}$,

(a.ii) keeps ${E}^{\sigma}$ invariant, where $\sigma =c,s,u$,

(a.iii) all eigenvalues of $\mathcal{O}\circ {D}_{p}{f}^{k}$, say ${\tilde{\lambda}}_{j}$, $j=1,2,\dots ,c$, are roots of unity.

*F*be a finite set $\{p,f(p),\dots ,{f}^{k-1}(p)\}$. Define

Observe that $\parallel {G}_{k-1}-{D}_{{f}^{k-1}(p)}f\parallel \le \parallel \mathcal{O}-\mathit{id}\parallel \parallel {D}_{{f}^{k-1}(p)}f\parallel <{\u03f5}_{0}$. Thus $\parallel {G}_{j}-{D}_{{f}^{j}(p)}f\parallel <{\u03f5}_{0}$ for all $j=0,1,\dots ,k-1$. By Lemma 2.3, we can find a diffeomorphism $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{{\u03f5}_{0}}(f)$ and ${\delta}_{0}>0$ such that

(b.i) ${B}_{4{\delta}_{0}}({f}^{j}(p))\subset U$,

(b.ii) ${B}_{4{\delta}_{0}}({f}^{i}(p))\cap {B}_{4{\delta}_{0}}(p)=\mathrm{\varnothing}$, $0\le i,j\le k-1$, $i\ne j$,

(b.iii) $g=f$ on $F\cup (M-{\bigcup}_{j=0}^{k-1}{B}_{4{\delta}_{0}}({f}^{j}(p)))$, and

(b.iv) $g={exp}_{{f}^{j+1}(p)}\circ {G}_{j}\circ {exp}_{{f}^{j}(p)}^{-1}$ on ${B}_{{\delta}_{0}}({f}^{j}(p))$, $0\le j\le k-1$.

*p*; and if the eigenvalue is complex, then $dim({exp}_{p}({E}^{c}(p,4{\delta}_{1})))=2$ and ${exp}_{p}({E}^{c}(p,4{\delta}_{1}))$ is a disk ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ centered at

*p*. We know that ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}\subset \mathcal{R}(g)$ and ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{p}}\subset \mathcal{R}(g)$. By (1), we get

Since *g* has the orbital shadowing property on $\mathcal{R}(g)$, *g* must have the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ and ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$. Since ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ and ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ are normally hyperbolic, we can see that a shadowing point is in ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ and ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$. Observe that ${({g}^{k})}^{m}=\mathit{id}$ on ${exp}_{p}({E}^{c}(p,4{\delta}_{1}))$. By our construction, ${({g}^{k})}^{m}$ is the identity on the arc ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ as well as on the disk ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$. Since the identity map does not have the orbital shadowing property. Indeed, let $\xi ={\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i\in \mathbb{Z}}\subset {\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ be a *δ*-pseudo orbit. Then, by the orbital shadowing property and normally hyperbolicity, there is a point $y\in {\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ such that ${\mathcal{O}}_{g}(y)\subset {B}_{\u03f5}({\mathcal{O}}_{g}(y))$ and $\xi \subset {B}_{\u03f5}({\mathcal{O}}_{g}(y))$. But since *g* is the identity map on ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{p}}$ for all $n\in \mathbb{Z}$, ${g}^{n}(y)=y$. Thus we have $\xi \not\subset {B}_{\u03f5}({\mathcal{O}}_{g}(y))$. This is a contradiction. This completes the proof of Proposition 2.1. □

## 3 Proof of Theorem 1.3

Let $f\in Diff(M)$, and let $p\in P(f)$ be a hyperbolic saddle with period $\pi (p)>0$. Then there are the local stable manifold ${W}_{\u03f5}^{s}(p)$ and the unstable manifold ${W}_{\u03f5}^{u}(p)$ of *p* for some $\u03f5=\u03f5(p)>0$. It is easily seen that if $d({f}^{n}(x),{f}^{n}(p))\le \u03f5$, for all $n\ge 0$, then $x\in {W}_{\u03f5}^{s}(p)$, and if $d({f}^{n}(x),{f}^{n}(p))\le \u03f5$ for all $n\le 0$, then $x\in {W}_{\u03f5}^{u}(p)$. Note that the local stable manifold ${W}_{\u03f5}^{s}(p)\subset {W}^{s}(p)$ (resp. the local unstable manifold ${W}_{\u03f5}^{u}(p)\subset {W}^{u}(p)$).

**Lemma 3.1** *Let* *p* *be a hyperbolic periodic point of* *f*, *and let* ${C}_{f}(p)$ *be the chain component of* *f* *containing* *p*. *If* *f* *has the orbital shadowing property on* ${C}_{f}(p)$, *then* ${C}_{f}(p)={H}_{f}(p)$.

*Proof*We know that ${H}_{f}(p)\subset {C}_{f}(p)$. We now show that ${C}_{f}(p)\subset {H}_{f}(p)$. Let $x\in {C}_{f}(p)$. Then $x\u21ddp$ and $p\u21ddx$. Thus, for any $\eta >0$, there is a periodic

*η*-pseudo orbit ${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i=-{n}_{1}}^{{n}_{2}}$ of

*f*such that ${x}_{-{n}_{1}}=p$, ${x}_{0}=x$ and ${x}_{{n}_{2}}=p$ for some ${n}_{1}={n}_{1}(\eta )$ and ${n}_{2}={n}_{2}(\eta )>0$. By [[10], Proposition 1.6], ${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i=-{n}_{1}}^{{n}_{2}}\subset {C}_{f}(p)$. To simplify, we may assume that $f(p)=p$. Then we extend the pseudo orbit as follows:

- (i)
${x}_{i}={f}^{{n}_{1}+i}(p)$ for all $i\le -{n}_{1}$ and

- (ii)
${x}_{i}={f}^{i-{n}_{2}}(p)$ for all $i\ge {n}_{2}$.

*η*-pseudo orbit:

*p*is a hyperbolic periodic point of

*f*, we can take an $\u03f5(p)>0$ such that $d({f}^{i}(x),{f}^{i}(p))=d({f}^{i}(x),p)\le \u03f5(p)$ for all $i\ge 0$ implies $x\in {W}_{\u03f5(p)}^{s}(p)$ and $d({f}^{-i}(x),{f}^{-i}(p))=d({f}^{-i}(x),p)\le \u03f5(p)$ for all $i\ge 0$ implies $x\in {W}_{\u03f5(p)}^{u}(p)$. Take $\u03f5=min\{{\u03f5}_{0},d(x,p)/4\}$, and let $0<\delta =\delta (\u03f5)<\u03f5$ be the number in the definition of the orbital shadowing property for

*f*. From the above, we set $\eta =\delta $. Then we see that $\xi \subset {C}_{f}(p)$. Since

*f*has the orbital shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$, there is $y\in M$ such that

There are ${l}_{1}>0$ and ${l}_{2}>0$ such that $d({f}^{-{n}_{1}}(p),{f}^{-{l}_{1}}(y))=d(p,{f}^{-{l}_{1}}(y))<\u03f5$, and $d({f}^{{n}_{2}}(p),{f}^{{l}_{2}}(y))=d(p,{f}^{{l}_{2}}(y))<\u03f5$.

Then $d(p,{f}^{-{l}_{1}-i}(y))<\u03f5$ for all $i\ge 0$, and $d(p,{f}^{{l}_{2}+i}(y))<\u03f5$ for all $i\ge 0$. Hence ${f}^{-{l}_{1}}(y)\in {W}_{\u03f5(p)}^{u}(p)$ and ${f}^{{l}_{2}}(y)\in {W}_{\u03f5(p)}^{s}(p)$. Therefore, we see that $y\in {W}^{s}(p)\cap {W}^{u}(p)$. Thus we can find $j\in \mathbb{Z}$ such that ${f}^{j}(y)\in {W}^{s}(p)\cap {W}^{u}(p)\cap {B}_{\u03f5}(x)\subset {H}_{f}(p)$. □

Let Λ be a closed *f*-invariant set. Note that if *f* has the orbital shadowing property on a locally maximal Λ, then the shadowing point can be taken from Λ.

**Lemma 3.2** *Suppose that* *f* *has the* ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property on* Λ. *Then for every* $p\in \mathrm{\Lambda}\cap P(f)$ *is hyperbolic*.

*Proof* Suppose that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on Λ. Then there exist a compact neighborhood *U* of Λ and a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* such that for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, *g* has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$. Take a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)\subset \mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* as in Lemma 2.3. Then arguing similarly as in the proof of Theorem 1.2, ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$ is seen to be a desired neighborhood of *f*. In fact, suppose $p\in {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}$ is a non-hyperbolic periodic point for some $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$. Observe that we can choose smaller ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$ if necessary so that $p\in intU$. Then, by making use of Lemma 2.3, we can construct a diffeomorphism $h\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$ ${C}^{1}$-close to *g* which has the invariant hyperbolic small arc ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{q}}$ and disk ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{q}}$, centered at *q*, contained in ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{h}(U)$, where ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{h}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{h}^{n}(U)$. Note that ${h}_{|\mathfrak{J}}^{k}=\mathit{id}$ for some $k>0$, where either $\mathfrak{J}={\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{q}}$ or $\mathfrak{J}={\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{q}}$. Since the identity map does not have the orbital shadowing property and ${h}^{k}$ has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathfrak{I}}_{\mathfrak{q}}$ as well as on ${\mathfrak{D}}_{\mathfrak{q}}$, we have a contradiction. This completes the proof. □

*f*-invariant set Λ admits a

*dominated splitting*if the tangent bundle ${T}_{\mathrm{\Lambda}}M$ has a continuous

*Df*-invariant splitting $E\oplus F$ and there exist $C>0$, $0<\lambda <1$ such that for all $x\in \mathrm{\Lambda}$ and $n\ge 0$, we have

**Remark 3.3** If Λ admits a dominated splitting ${T}_{\mathrm{\Lambda}}M=E\oplus F$ such that for any $x\in \mathrm{\Lambda}$, $dimE(x)$ is constant, then there are a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ of *f* and a compact neighborhood *V* of Λ such that for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, ${\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(V)$ admits a dominated splitting ${T}_{{\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(V)}M={E}^{\prime}\oplus {F}^{\prime}$ with $dimE=dim{E}^{\prime}$.

From Lemma 3.2, for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, the family of periodic sequences of linear isomorphisms of ${\mathbb{R}}^{dimM}$ generated by *Dg* along the hyperbolic periodic points $q\in {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)\cap P(g)$ is uniformly hyperbolic (see [11]). Indeed, there is $\u03f5>0$ such that for any $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$, $q\in {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)\cap P(g)$, and any sequence of linear maps ${L}_{i}:{T}_{{g}^{i}(q)}M\to {T}_{{g}^{i+1}(q)}M$ with $\parallel {L}_{i}-{D}_{{g}^{i}(q)}g\parallel <\u03f5$ for $i=1,2,\dots ,\pi (q)-1$, and ${\prod}_{i=0}^{\pi (q)-1}{L}_{i}$ is hyperbolic. Here $\mathcal{U}(f)$ is the ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood of *f*. Then we can apply Proposition 2.1 in [11] to obtain the following proposition.

**Proposition 3.4**

*Suppose that*

*f*

*has the*${C}^{1}$-

*stably orbitally shadowing property on*${C}_{f}(p)$.

*Then there exist a*${C}^{1}$-

*neighborhood*$\mathcal{U}(f)$

*of*

*f*,

*constants*$C>0$, $0<\lambda <1$

*and*$m\in {\mathbb{Z}}^{+}$

*such that*

- (1)
*for each*$g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$,*if**q**is a periodic point of**g**in*${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$*with period*$\pi (q,g)$ ($\pi (q,g)\ge m$),*then*$\prod _{i=0}^{k-1}\parallel D{g}^{m}{|}_{{E}^{s}({g}^{im}(q))}\parallel <C{\lambda}^{k}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathit{\text{and}}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\prod _{i=0}^{k-1}\parallel D{g}^{-m}{|}_{{E}^{u}({g}^{-im}(q))}\parallel <C{\lambda}^{k},$

*where*$k=[\pi (q,g)/m]$.

- (2)
${C}_{f}(p)$

*admits a dominated splitting*${T}_{{C}_{f}(p)}M=E\oplus F$*with*$dimE=index(p)$.

**Remark 3.5** By Proposition 3.4(2) and [[12], Theorem A], the homoclinic class ${H}_{f}(p)$ is the transverse homoclinic class ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)$. Thus if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbital shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$, then we see that ${H}_{f}^{T}(p)={H}_{f}(p)={C}_{f}(p)$.

*j*denote the $index(p)$, $0<j<dimM$, and let

where $0<i<dim(M)$. We write ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{i}(f)=\overline{{P}_{i}(f{|}_{{H}_{f}(p)})}$. Then we know that these are basic sets and ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{i}(f)={H}_{f}(p)$. In general, a non-hyperbolic homoclinic class ${H}_{f}(p)$ contains saddle periodic points with different indices. Since ${H}_{f}(p)\subset {C}_{f}(p)$, we know that the chain component ${C}_{f}(p)$ may contain saddle periodic points with different indices in general. However, if *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$, then such a case cannot happen. Thus we need the following proposition to prove Theorem 1.3.

**Proposition 3.6** *Suppose that* *f* *has the* ${C}^{1}$-*stably orbitally shadowing property on* ${C}_{f}(p)$. *Then for any* $q\in {C}_{f}(p)\cap P(f)$, $index(p)=index(q)$.

To prove Proposition 3.6, we need the following lemma.

**Lemma 3.7**

*Suppose that*

*f*

*has the orbital shadowing property on*${C}_{f}(p)$.

*Then*,

*for any hyperbolic*$q\in {C}_{f}(p)\cap P(f)$,

*Proof* Suppose that *f* has the orbital shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$. Let $\u03f5(p)>0$ and $\u03f5(q)>0$ be as in the definition of ${W}_{\u03f5(p)}^{s,u}(p)$ and ${W}_{\u03f5(q)}^{s,u}(q)$ with respect to *p* and *q*. To simplify notation in this proof, we may assume that $f(p)=p$ and $f(q)=q$. Take $\u03f5=min\{\u03f5(p),\u03f5(q)\}$, and let $0<\delta =\delta (\u03f5)\le \u03f5$ be the number of the definition of the orbital shadowing property for *f*.

*δ*-pseudo orbit ${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i=-n}^{n}$ ($n\ge 1$) such that

- (i)
${\{{x}_{i}\}}_{i=-n}^{n}\subset {C}_{f}(p)$, and

- (ii)
${x}_{-n}=q$, ${x}_{0}=x$ and ${x}_{n}=p$.

*δ*-pseudo orbit as follows: Put

- (i)
${x}_{-n-i}={f}^{i}(q)$ for all $i\ge 0$, and

- (ii)
${x}_{n+i}={f}^{i}(p)$ for all $i\ge 0$.

*δ*-pseudo orbit

*f*has the orbital shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$, there is a point $y\in M$ such that

Then, we see that ${\mathcal{O}}_{f}(y)\cap {W}_{\u03f5}^{u}(q)\cap {W}_{\u03f5}^{s}(p)\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$. Thus ${W}^{u}(q)\cap {W}^{s}(p)\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$. The other case is similar. □

A diffeomorphism *f* is said to be *Kupka-Smale* if the periodic points of *f* are hyperbolic, and if $p,q\in P(f)$, then ${W}^{s}(p)$ is transversal to ${W}^{u}(q)$. It is well known that the set of Kupka-Smale diffeomorphisms is a ${C}^{1}$-residual set in $Diff(M)$.

*Proof of Proposition 3.6* Suppose that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$. Let $\mathcal{U}(f)$ be a ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood of *f* and *U* be a compact neighborhood of ${C}_{f}(p)$ as in the definition. Note that ${C}_{f}(p)$ is upper semi continuous and ${H}_{f}(p)$ is lower semi continuous. By Lemma 3.1, ${C}_{f}(p)={H}_{f}(p)$, ${C}_{f}(p)$ is semi continuous. By the definition, ${C}_{g}({p}_{g})\subset {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)={\bigcap}_{n\in \mathbb{Z}}{g}^{n}(U)$. To derive a contradiction, we may assume that there is a point $q\in {C}_{f}(p)\cap P(f)$ such that for any $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)\subset \mathcal{U}(f)$, $q\in {C}_{g}({p}_{g})\cap P(g)$ and $index(p)<index(q)$, where ${p}_{g}$ is the continuation. By Lemma 3.2, for every $q\in {C}_{f}(p)\cap P(f)$ is hyperbolic. Then we know that $dim{W}^{s}(p)+dim{W}^{u}(q)<dimM$. Take a Kupka-Smale diffeomorphism $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$. Then there are the ${p}_{g}$ and ${q}_{g}$ that are the continuations of *p* and *q* respectively, and ${q}_{g}\in {C}_{g}({p}_{g})\cap P(g)\subset {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)\cap P(g)$. Since $dim{W}^{s}({p}_{g})=dim{W}^{s}(p)$ and $dim{W}^{u}({q}_{g})=dim{W}^{u}(q)$, we know that ${W}^{s}({p}_{g})\cap {W}^{u}({q}_{g})=\mathrm{\varnothing}$, where ${W}^{s}({p}_{g})$ and ${W}^{u}({q}_{g})$ are the stable and the unstable manifolds of ${p}_{g}$ and ${q}_{g}$ with respect to *g*. On the other hand, since $g\in {\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$, *g* has the orbital shadowing property on ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)$. Thus *g* has the shadowing property on ${C}_{g}({p}_{g})$. By Lemma 3.7, ${W}^{s}({p}_{g})\cap {W}^{u}({q}_{g})\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$. This is a contradiction. □

*ϵ*-tubular neighborhood of ${\mathcal{O}}_{f}(x)$; that is,

Let ${\mathrm{\Sigma}}_{f}$ be the set of points $x\in M$ such that for any ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood $\mathcal{U}(f)$ and $\u03f5>0$, there are $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$ and $\gamma \in P(g)$ such that $g=f$ on $M\setminus {B}_{\u03f5}(f,x)$ and $d({f}^{i}(x),{g}^{i}(\gamma ))\le \u03f5$, for $0\le i\le \pi (\gamma )$. The following lemma is in [11].

**Lemma 3.8** [11]

*For any* *f*-*invariant probability measure* *μ*, *we have* $\mu ({\mathrm{\Sigma}}_{f})=1$.

*End of the Proof of Theorem 1.3* Suppose that *f* has the ${C}^{1}$-stably orbitally shadowing property on ${C}_{f}(p)$. Let ${\mathcal{U}}_{0}(f)$ be the ${C}^{1}$-neighborhood of *f* given by Proposition 3.4. To get the conclusion, it is sufficient to show that ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{i}(f)$ is hyperbolic, where ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{i}(f)=\overline{{P}_{i}(f{|}_{{C}_{f}(p)})}$, and *i* is the index of *p*. Fix any neighborhood ${U}_{i}\subset U$ of ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{i}(f)$. Note that by Proposition 3.6, ${\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{j}(f)=\overline{{P}_{j}(f{|}_{{C}_{f}(p)})}=\mathrm{\varnothing}$ if $i\ne j$.

*f*. If any $g\in \mathcal{V}(f)$ satisfies $q=f$ on $M\setminus {U}_{i}$, then $index(p)=index(q)$ for any $p,q\in {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)\cap P(g)$. Indeed, suppose not, then there are ${g}_{1}\in \mathcal{V}(f)$ and $q\in {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}(U)\cap P({g}_{1})$ such that ${g}_{1}=f$ on $M\setminus {U}_{i}$ and $index(p)\ne index(q)$. Suppose that ${g}_{1}^{n}(q)=q$, $k=index(q)$, and define $\gamma :\mathcal{V}(f)\to \mathbb{Z}$ by

By Lemma 3.2, the function *γ* is continuous, and since $\mathcal{V}(f)$ is connected, it is constant. But the property of ${g}_{1}$ implies $\gamma ({g}_{1})>\gamma (f)$. This is a contradiction.

for all $x\in {C}_{f}(p)$, and thus, the splitting is hyperbolic.

*M*is a compact metric space. Thus

*f*-invariant measure. Let

and ${\mathrm{\Sigma}}_{f}$ = {$x\in M:d({f}^{n}(x),y)<\u03f5$, there exist $g\in \mathcal{U}(f)$ and $y\in P(g)$ such that $g=f$ on $M\setminus {B}_{\u03f5}(f,x)$ and $d({f}^{i}(x),{f}^{i}(y))\le \u03f5$ for $0\le i\le \pi (y)$}.

Note that if $x\notin P(f)$, $0\le \pi (y)=N$ such that $d({f}^{N}(x),{f}^{N}(y))=d({f}^{N}(x),y)\to 0$ as $N\to \mathrm{\infty}$, then $d(x,y)\to 0$. So, this is a contradiction.

By Proposition 3.4, this is a contradiction.

Thus, by Proposition 3.4, ${z}_{0}\notin P(f)$.

Then, by Mañé’s ergodic closing lemma, we can find $g\in {\mathcal{V}}_{0}(f)$ $g=f$ on $M\setminus {U}_{j}$ and ${r}_{g}\in {\mathrm{\Lambda}}_{g}\cap P(g)$ near by *r*.

*g*such that

for all $x\in {C}_{f}(p)$. Therefore, ${C}_{f}(p)$ is hyperbolic. This completes the proof of the ‘only if’ part of Theorem 1.3. □
