ok homolytic fission in covalent bonds has to do with free radicals and alkanes and its when 2 electrons in the bond split equally between each part, because of an unpaired electron in each part, where its a radical

here let me show you what i mean: it comes under free radical substition from what i remember, hope it helps

Cl2--->2Cl.
