Beschreibung

This unique perspective explores the role of computer simulation in the sports realm, through the study of five specific examples. Readers will find detailed coverage of the contributions computational science and engineering (CSE) make to sports research.


All over the world sport plays a prominent role in society: as a leisure activity for many, as an ingredient of culture, as a business and as a matter of national prestige in such major events as the World Cup in soccer or the Olympic Games. Hence, it is not surprising that science has entered the realm of sports, and, in particular, that computer simulation has become highly relevant in recent years. This is explored in this book by choosing five different sports as examples, demonstrating that computational science and engineering (CSE) can make essential contributions to research on sports topics on both the fundamental level and, eventually, by supporting athletes' performance.



The highlight of the book is a survey of Alfio Quarteroni and his collaborators on the mathematical modelling and computational simulation that they did for the America' s Cup winning Swiss team Alinghi.
