In this thesis we will studysnap-back repellersin one-and two dimensional maps. A repelling fixed point is a snap-back repeller if a point unequal to the fixed point in a repelling neighborhood of the fixed points returns to the fixed point after a finite number of iterations. The main reason to study snap-back repellers is to show chaos. Marotto has proven that a dynamical system is chaotic if a fixed point is a snap-back repeller.We will discuss some examples of one-dimensional maps and we will go to two-dimensional maps using a rotation. Wealsodidnumerical computations to find snap-back repellers in two-dimensional maps, forexamplethe logistic map with a rotation, to show how snap-back repellers can be found.
