Piecewise linear Fermi-Ulam pingpongs. We consider a particle moving freely between two periodically moving infinitely heavy walls. We assume that one wall is fixed and the second one moves with piecewise linear velocities. We study the question about existence and abundance of accelerating orbits for that model. This is a joint work with Jacopo de Simoi
