Sinai Billiards under Small External Forces II

  • Nikolai ChernovEmail author


We study perturbations of Sinai billiards, where a small stationary force acts on the moving particle between its collisions with scatterers. In the previous work [7] we proved that the collision map preserved a unique Sinai–Ruelle–Bowen (SRB) measure that was Bernoulli and had exponential decay of correlations. Here we add several other statistical properties, including bounds on multiple correlations, the almost sure invariance principle (ASIP), the law of iterated logarithms, and a Kawasaki-type formula. We also show that the corresponding flow is Bernoulli and satisfies a central limit theorem.
