On some invariants of Birkhoff billiards under conjugacy
In the class of strictly convex smooth boundaries, each of which not having strip around its boundary foliated by invariant curves, we prove that the Taylor coefficients of the "normalized" Mather's $\beta$-function are invariants under $C^\infty$-conjugacies. In contrast, we prove that any two elliptic billiard maps are $C^0$-conjugated near their respective boundaries, and $C^\infty$-conjugated in the open cylinder, near the boundary and away from a plain passing through the center of the underlying ellipse. We also prove that if the billiard maps corresponding to two ellipses are topologically conjugated then the two ellipses are similar.
