Entropy of Compact Group Automorphisms
by Thomas Ward
Publisher: University of East Anglia 2001
Number of pages: 84
These notes cover a very short introduction to measure-theoretic and topological entropy, and are aimed at understanding part of Yuzvinskii's formula for the entropy of compact group automorphisms. Based on a course at the Ohio State University.

The goal of these notes is to give a reasonably complete, although not exhaustive, discussion of what is commonly referred to as the Hopf bifurcation with applications to specific problems, including stability calculations.
