Summary:  A continuous linear operator $T:X\to X$ is hypercyclic/super\-cyclic if there is a vector $f\in X$ such that the orbit $\orb (T,f) =\{ T^n f\}$/respec\-tively the set of scalar-multiples of the orbit elements, forms a dense set. A famous theorem, due to G.\ Godefroy \& J.\ Shapiro, states that every non-scalar convolution operator, on the space $\Hb$ of entire functions in $d$ variables, is hypercyclic (and thus supercyclic). This motivates us to study cyclicity of operators on $\Hb$ outside the set of convolution operators. We establish large classes of supercyclic and hypercyclic non-convolution operators.
