Abstract: We establish conditions for an isolated invariant set $ M$ of a map to be a repellor. The conditions are first formulated in terms of the stable set of $ M$. They are then refined in two ways by considering (i) a Morse decomposition for $ M$, and (ii) the invariantly connected components of the chain recurrent set of $ M$. These results generalize and unify earlier persistence results.
