Abstract: I will survey the basic properties of topological entropy. In particular I will give a full proof of a classic result by Bowen which relates the entropy of a cascade with that of a factor cascade and the fiberwise entropies. From this theorem it follows that e.g. factors with finite fibers or isometric extensions preserve topological entropy.
