Dynamical Systems Seminar

Title: An integrable billiard close to an ellipse of small eccentricity is an ellipse
Speaker: Dr. Jacopo De Simoi
Speaker Info: University of Toronto
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The classical Birkhoff conjecture states that the only integrable convex domains are circles and ellipses. In the talk we show that this conjecture is true for small perturbations of the circle. This is joint work with A. Avila and V. Kaloshin.
