Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to show that if f is a diffeomorphism of a compact manifold whose Birkhoff center, $ c(f)$, is hyperbolic and has no cycles, then f satisfies Axiom A and is $ \Omega $-stable. To obtain a filtration for $ c(f)$, the concept of an isolated set for a homeomorphism of a compact metric space is introduced. As a partial converse it is proved that if $ c(f)$ is hyperbolic and f is $ \Omega $-stable, then $ c(f)$ has the no cycle property. A characterization of $ \Omega $-stability when $ c(f)$ is finite is also given.
