Abstract: We consider polynomial maps of the form $ f(z,w) = (p(z),q(z,w))$ that extend as holomorphic maps of $ \mathbb{CP}^2$. Mattias Jonsson introduces in ``Dynamics of polynomial skew products on $ \mathbf{C}^2$'' [Math. Ann., 314(3): 403-447, 1999] a notion of connectedness for such polynomial skew products that is analogous to connectivity for the Julia set of a polynomial map in one-variable. We prove the following dichotomy: if $ f$ is an Axiom-A polynomial skew product, and $ f$ is connected, then every Fatou component of $ f$ is homeomorphic to an open ball; otherwise, some Fatou component of $ F$ has infinitely generated first homology.
