In this last chapter, we select a number of topics that are of varying degrees of importance in the study of deterministic chaos and at the same time have either established, or potential, points of contact with statistics. Our aim is to give a general flavour rather than going into all the technical details. In any case, some of the topics are selected not so much for their completeness, but rather their potential for exciting developments.
