The mathematical theory underlying many sporting activities is of considerable interest to both applied mathematicians and sporting enthusiasts alike. Here Professor de Mestre presents a rigorous account of the techniques applied to the motion of projectiles. This equips the reader for the final section of the book in which an enlightening collection of sporting applications is considered, ranging from soccer to table-tennis and high-jump to frisbees. The presentation should be accessible to most undergraduate science students and provides an ideal setting for the development of mathematical modelling techniques.

Recensioner i media

"...delightful book which treats a special set of dynamical systems of considerable interest." Victor G. Szebehely, American Mathematical Monthly

"The writing is clear and the book is very free of errors. The early chapters could well serve advanced undergraduates as a source of interesting problems; the later chapters and references could provide research material for graduate students or faculty." Mathematical Reviews

"...an interesting book that presents some difficult material in a terse but readable style." Richard C. Roberts, Journal of College Science Teaching
