ETDS: Generic dynamics of the Ehrenfest Wind-tree mode

6 April 2017, 3.00 PM – 6 April 2017, 4.00 PM Alba Marina MÁLAGA SABOGAL, University Paris 8 4th floor seminar room, Howard House In the wind-tree model you play billiards on an infinite table which is the complement of a set of square obstacles. We consider a wind-tree model with arbitrarily placed obstacles and […]
