Pseudo-integrable billiards: topological properties and arithmetic dynamics
Friday, Apr 5, 2013
2 p.m. - 3 p.m. Location: FN 2.102

This week's Mathematical Sciences Department colloquium is given by Dr. Vladimir Dragović, Professor of Mathematics, of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Texas at Dallas.

We introduce a class of nonconvex billiards with a boundary composed of arcs of con-focal conics which contain reflex angles. We present their basic topological and arithmetic properties. We study their periodic orbits and establish a local Poncelet porism. The connection with interval exchange transformation is established together with the Keane-type conditions for minimality

Coffee will be served in FO 2.610F at  1:30 PM.
