The paper is the fourth chapter of the fourth volume [F. Battelli (ed.) et al., Handbook of differential equations: Ordinary differential equations. Vol. IV. Amsterdam: Elsevier/North Holland. Handbook of Differential Equations, (2008; Zbl 1173.34001)] in a series of volumes devoted to self-contained and up-to-date surveys in the theory of ordinary differential equations. The paper is devoted to the detailed study of the dynamics of systems covered by ordinary differential equations in the case of the presence of transversal periodic-to-periodic homoclinic orbits. The paper's contents can be viewed from the section titles listed below.
