Abstract: We prove that a homeomorphism of the torus homotopic to the identity whose rotation set is reduced to a single totally irrational vector is chain-recurrent. In fact, we show that pseudo-orbits can be chosen with a small number of jumps, in particular, that the non-wandering set is weakly transitive. We give an example showing that the non-wandering set of such a homeomorphism may not be transitive.
