|Title:||What is the outer billiard|
|Seminar:||Slow Pitch Seminar|
|I shall survey the theory of outer billiards. The study of this lesser-known kind of mathematical billiard game was put forward by J. Moser in the 1960s, and since then the subject continues to attract attention (in particular, recently R. Schwartz made a breakthrough in an old problem whether orbits can escape to infinity in polygonal outer billiards). In my talk, I shall emphasize open research problems.|
