Abstract

In this paper we put the basis for a mathematical theory of competition in situation sports, such as dual sports and team sports. It is shown that in dual contest sports, the motion of the centre of mass of a couple of athletes is well described, with a good approximation, by Classical Brownian Motion. In contrast, the problem of the motion in team sports, like soccer, football, basketball, water polo, and so on, seems more complex and it would be better to be modelled by a special class of Brownian Motion, the well known Active Brownian Motion, with internal energy depot. In this paper a special equation is proposed for the first time, describing the athletes motion in team sports game and a numerical simulation of the trajectories. The motion paths, obtained from the computational approach, are validated using experimental data of actual games, obtained from motion analysis systems. © 2008 Civil-Comp Press.
