Geometry and Billiards
by


Number of pages: 186

Description:
Mathematical billiards describe the motion of a mass point in a domain with elastic reflections from the boundary. Billiards is not a single mathematical theory, it is rather a mathematician’s playground where various methods and approaches are tested and honed.
