"Paralipomenon" is Greek and means "additional chapter", "supplement". Depending on the interests of the audience and the time available, we will risk excursions into some of the following topics: bifurcations in discrete dynamical systems, in PDEs, bifurcations and symmetries, global bifurcations, bifurcation without parameter. These complementary topics are intended for those students who still realize that studies are more than the successive acquisition of credit points in modules which are prefabricated to the gusto of Bolognese administrators. They are particularly suitable for the mathematically ambitious, including - but not limited to - the members of the BMS.
See also the lecture "Dynamical Systems 3: Bifurcation Theory".
Prerequisites are Dynamical Systems 1 and/or 2.
