We study the discrete self-trapping (DST) equation with three degrees of freedom. By taking the DST dimer as the underlying unperturbed system we treat the coupling to the additional oscillator as a small perturbation. Using the generalized Melnikov method we prove the existence of homoclinic chaos in the DST-trimer dynamics.
