On the full number of collisions in certain one-dimensional billiard problems

Abstract
In the present work we consider motion of a light particle between a wall and a massive particle. Collisions in the system are elastic. In [1] the full number of collisions in this system was calculated. It turned out to be approximately equal to the product of number $\pi$ and the square root of ratio of the particles' masses. This formula was derived using reduction of the system to a billiard. In the present work this result is derived by means of the adiabatic perturbation theory for systems with impacts [2].
