B8: Symplectic methods for generalized billiards
Albers, Bramham, Pozzetti, Hryniewicz
The aim of this project is to combine the theory of finite energy foliations for 3-dimensional Reeb flows and 2-dimensional billiard dynamics. One goal is to achieve a deeper understanding specifically of non-convex billiard tables and of generalized billiard systems. The use of holomorphic curve methods for 3-dimensional Reeb flows, in particular on S3, was pioneered by Hofer-Wysocki-Zehnder.
