I was reading "Prove that Anosov Automorphisms are chaotic," and the answer and a few of the comments talked about orbits. I'm curious what is meant by "orbits" in the given context. Is it analogous to transformations?

This is the link.

Given a set $S$, a function $f:S\to S$, and an element $x$ in $S$, the orbit of $x$ is the set $$\{{\,x,f(x),f(f(x)),f(f(f(x))),\dots\,\}}$$
