Abstract: In this paper, we consider C-1 vector fields X in R-3 having a "generalized heteroclinic loop" L which is topologically homeomorphic to the union of a 2-dimensional sphere S-2 and a diameter Gamma connecting the north with the south pole. The north pole is an attractor on S-2 and a repeller on Gamma. The equator of the sphere is a periodic orbit unstable in the north hemisphere and stable in the south one. The full space is topologically homeomorphic to the closed ball having as boundary the sphere S-2. We also assume that the flow of X is invariant Under a topological straight line symmetry on the equator plane of the ball. For each n is an element of N, by means of a convenient Poincare map, we prove the existence of infinitely many symmetric periodic orbits of X near L that gives n turns around X in a period. We also exhibit a class of polynomial vector fields of degree 4 in R-3 satisfying this dynamics. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
