Abstract: We consider a dynamical system with elastic reflections in the whole plane and show that such a dynamical system can be represented as a symbolic flow over a mixing subshift of finite type. This fact enables us to prove an analogue of the prime number theorem for the closed orbits of such a dynamical system.
