Name used by many mathematicians in earlier papers to refer to a mu-atom. It appears to have originated with John Milnor, in notes that were first published in this 1992 paper but the term was in use some years earlier.
We consider polynomial maps f : C → C of degree d ≥ 2 , [...] the hyperbolic maps in CS form an open set HS called the hyperbolic connectedness locus. The various connected components Hα ⊂ HS are called hyperbolic components [...]
This is a more general name for any region in any parameter plane whose members have iteration dynamics with hyperbolic properties.
