The implementation of stochastic cooling in a confined geometry is discussed, where the boundary shape is
found to be an independent control parameter for arriving at a variety of final spatial and momentum distributions.
Results for integrable and nonintegrable geometries are contrasted in terms of both efficiency of cooling
and mechanisms for saturation.
