Title. Levy diffusion for Lorentz gas with flat points


We investigate the diffusion and statistical properties of Lorentz gas with cusps at flat points. The underlying dynamical systems are modifications of dispersing billiards with cusps. The systems generate stochastic processes with slow mixing rates of order $n^{-a$}, for $ a\in (0,1)$. We are able to show that these stochastic processes enjoy stable law and have super-diffusion driven by Levy processes.
