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 the high jump to frisbees and soccer to table tennis. The presentation should be accessible to most undergraduate science students and provides an ideal setting for the development of mathematical modeling techniques.
