In deserts makes its prey;

Scare school-boys from their play!

Soap-bubbles fair, but all too frail,
Or kites,--but thereby hangs a tail.

Below, the raven wings his flight,
And often on the screaming kite
She sees the wild deer gaze.

An' 'er pretty skysails atop of 'em all."

Turned out the kite with leaden tail,
Turned out the mind that could not soar
Because of foolish weights it bore.

The geometric shape resulting in the one time application of the Katok-Zemlyakov construction to a given triangle is called a KITE and is shown on the pic 1.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
The next picture shows the Katok-Zemlyakov construction for a given billiard tra jectory inside the kite.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
We now ﬁx a kite, obtained from a given triangle and we denote as α and β the angles of a kite corresponding to the endpoints of the ”reﬂecting” side of the triangle and assume that α < β .
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Such a kite then has an oriented ” main diagonal”, connecting two vertices, corresponding to α and β and we consider the sequence of angles θi between the main diagonal and straightened billiard tra jectory as one applies KatokZemlyakov construction.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
The left interval on the kite side, transversal to the beam direction is called a base segment or base of a beam and the right interval is called an end segment or end of the beam.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Note, that by the deﬁnition beam does not have any kite vertices inside, as the Katok-Zemliakov is undeﬁned on when the tra jectory hits a vertex.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Let B (ǫ, T ) be a parallel beam such that : 1) The beam base intersects with a beam end as kite segments. 2) The base and end angular kite positions are the same.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Then the number of kites it intersects during the Katok-Zemlyakov construction is less then C T /ǫ, where C is a constant depending on kite only.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Consider any intersection of the beam with a given kite.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Since the width of the beam is ǫ then for ǫ small enough there will be at least on point of the beam on the distance at least ǫ from all the kite vertices.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Then by elementary trigonometry there exists a beam segment inside a kite of the length at least ǫ/C , where C > 0 is large enough and depend only on the kite.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
Now counting the total length of the beam segments for all kites intersecting the beam gives the desired inequality.
Splitting time for irrational triangle billiards
And let Kαβ be the kite of diameter 1 with angles α, β .
