Abstract: We construct an area- and orientation-preserving recurrent diffeomorphism on the annulus without periodic points, which is not conjugate to a rotation. The mapping is, however, semiconjugate to an irrational rotation of a circle. Our example is a counterexample to the Birkhoff Conjecture.
