Abstract
In this work we suggest a simple method for constructing $G$-equivariant systems of ODEs in $\mathbb{R}^3$ (i.e., systems whose trajectories are invariant under the action of this group on $\mathbb{R}^3$) that possess multiple disjoint heteroclinic networks. Heteroclinic networks under consideration consist of saddle equilibria that belong to coordinate axes and one-dimensional separatrices connecting them. We require these separatrices to lie on coordinate planes. We also assume the action of $G$ on $\mathbb{R}^3$ to be generated by cyclic permutation of coordinate variables and reflection with respect to one of the coordinate planes. As an example, we provide a step-by-step construction of three-dimensional flow with two disjoint heteroclinic networks. Also, we present a sketch of global dynamics analysis for the minimal example.
