On Quadrilateral Orbits in Complex Algebraic Planar Billiards


The famous conjecture of V.Ya.Ivrii (1978) says that in every bil-liard with infinitely-smooth boundary in a Euclidean space the set of periodic orbits has measure zero. In the present paper we study the complex algebraic version of Ivrii's conjecture for quadrilateral orbits in two dimensions, with reflections from complex algebraic curves. We present the complete classification of 4-reflective algebraic counterexamples: billiards formed by four complex algebraic curves in the pro-jective plane that have open set of quadrilateral orbits. As a corollary, we provide classification of the so-called real algebraic pseudo-billiards with open set of quadrilateral orbits: billiards formed by four real algebraic curves; the reflections allow to change the side with respect to the reflecting tangent line.
