Recently Peter Sarnak proposed a conjecture concerning the disjointness of the Mobius function from zero-entropy flows. Distal flows form a subclass of zero-entropy flows. In this talk I will report a joint work with Sarnak that the conjecture is true for various distal flows, some of which can be irregular in the sense that their ergodic average need not to exist for all points.
