In conclusion, we have argued that dynamical systems theory applied to motor control is a relevant framework for performance-oriented sports biomechanics research.
Random dynamical systems theory enables us to analyze the global stability properties of economic systems.
The authors go on to suggest that dynamical systems theory is not based on the existence of common optimal movement patterns that many sports biomechanics researchers have strived to establish.
Briefly, in dynamical systems theory, mathematical models are usually expressed as a set of coupled ordinary differential (or difference) equations of the form:
Coverage encompasses orbital debris, dynamical systems theory, autonomous aerobraking, trajectory optimization, formation flying, conjunction assessment, non-earth orbiting missions, the Artemis mission, planetary mission studies, spacecraft guidance, satellite constellations, the Messenger at Mercury, large space structures and tethers, and rendezvous, among other topics.
Recognizing dynamical systems theory as the epistemological basis for conceptualizing motivation, contributors from linguistics and education introduce research methodologies that allow the study of individual motivational trajectories in second language acquisition at several time scales.
