Juggling and bouncing balls: parallels and differences in dynamic concepts and tools

Juggling and bouncing balls: parallels and differences in dynamic concepts and tools

International Journal of Sport Psychology 30(4): 462-489

Two lines of research on the related skills of rhythmic bouncing a ball and juggling three balls were reviewed with the goal to reveal commonalities in the strategy typifying the dynamic systems approach to movement coordination. For both lines of research concepts from nonlinear dynamics and their experimental results were presented in parallel.
