Catastrophe theory generally discusses systems that regularly behave by analyzing the critical points and explaining the radical jumps that occur as they pass through these critical points continuously from stable to unstable state. This study aims to analyze the critical points in the field of landslides and the application of catastrophe theory related to the stability of slopes in the landslide case. The factor of safety (FS) values are used to determine the critical points. The results showed that the critical points occurred at the FS value of 1.61 to 0.92. Based on these FS values, it can be seen the change from a stable to an unstable state that indicates the catastrophic phenomenon.
