Summary:  The main topic of this paper is the Hypercyclicity Criterion. We construct mixing operators which fail Kitai's Criterion, thus answering a question of Shapiro. We show that the Bounded Steps Problem introduced by B\` es and Peris is equivalent to the Hypercyclicity Criterion. Then we show that hypercyclic operators which satisfy an additional regularity assumption satisfy the Hypercyclicity Criterion: if $T$ is hypercyclic and upper-triangular, or if $T$ has a dense set of vectors with bounded orbit, or if $T \oplus T$ is cyclic, then $T\oplus T$ is hypercyclic. We give similar results for cyclic operators.
