|Title||Pseudo-integrable billiards within confocal conics|
|Presenter||Milena Radnovic (The University of Sydney)|
|Session||Dynamical Systems and Fluid Dynamics|
We study pseudo-integrable billiards generated by a boundary composed of several arcs of confocal conics having nonconvex angles. The dynamics of such billiards have several extraordinary properties, which are related to interval exchange transformations and which generate families of flows that are minimal but not uniquely ergodic.
