In this paper we give a proof of the existence of smooth nonlocal center manifolds for systems close to a system with a homoclinic orbit to a saddle-type equilibrium point. Our proof is based on a consideration of some class of the boundary value problems (see Section 3). We obtain estimates for solutions of the boundary value problems that allow us to prove the theorem on the center manifolds at the C1 -assumptions for the smoothness of systems.
