Persistent Passive Hopping and Juggling is Possible Even With Plastic Collisions

A. Chatterjee, R. Pratap, C.K. Reddy, A. Ruina
2002 The international journal of robotics research  
The existence of such special energy conserving solutions for hopping and juggling points to possibly useful strategies for both animals and robots.  ...  For juggling, a lower point-mass hand is connected by a spring to the ground and an upper point-mass ball is caught with an inelastic collision and then re-thrown into gravitational free flight.  ...  Steve Collins helped set up and perform the air-track juggling experiment.  ...

Feedback control of multibody systems with joint clearance and dynamic backlash: a tutorial

Bernard Brogliato
2017 Multibody system dynamics  
Section 3 is dedicated to the analysis of impactless, persistent contact control. Section 4 deals with control with impacts, where mechanisms with clearances are recast into juggling systems.  ...  Various control strategies are reviewed: impactless trajectories with persistent contact, control through collisions, the stabilization of equilibrium points, and trajectory tracking control.  ...  may occur (one reason being that control with persistent contact is not always possible).  ...

An Evolutionary Game-Based Mechanism for Routing P2P Network Flow among Selfish Peers

Fang Zuo, Wei Zhang
2014 Journal of Networks  
These agents are imposed by a set of network applications, which is integrated with a DAIM model databases.  ...  Telecommunication networks need to support a wide range of services and functionalities with capability of autonomy, scalability and adaptability for managing applications to meet business needs.  ...  From the evaluation results of figure 7 , we could conclude that with the increase of the total identifier number, the percentage of the collision is negligible, even to the extent of zero collision.  ...

A score of 2 is assigned when a movement pattern is performed with a compensation (acceptable), and a score of 1 is given when an individual cannot perform the movement, even with a compensation (dysfunctional  ...  Each juggle was evaluated using a 6-point scale designed to measure juggling accuracy with criteria based on asymmetrical release, ball height, and successful catching.  ...  It is well-established that self-control is positively related to academic achievement and physical performance.  ...

In preparation for the Habesha Jugglers to join the Urban Vibe Circus tour, Barry had sent them a high-energy hip-hop track, and had them re-choreograph their acts, combining club juggling, bounce juggling  ...  The dangerous thing is something lay people don't even think about.  ...  Juggling: the skill of keeping a number of objects in the air at the same time, by continuously throwing and catching the objects. Juggling requires good hand-eye coordination.  ...

The notion of touch is also key in portraying the already-imbricated nature of player and videogame.  ...  Playing videogames is an interactive practice that synthesizes the analog (both/and) logic of human player-subjects and the digital (either/or) logic of game-objects as they emerge from an undifferentiated  ...  Exploration of such lived experience is possible in and with phenomenology.  ...

Escaping the time trap: Using long durational performance art to investigate temporalisation

An examination of time and temporalisation in long durational performance art  ...  It is so easy to not do thatto not hop off the track. It's actually so much easier to keep rolling along, even though it's hard because of all the pressure.  ...  I took in with me three, 10 litre plastic containers of water, which proved ample for drinking and washing dishes and myself.  ...

The problem of Beckett in postmodern American literature

James Baxter
In particular, I argue that Beckett's influence intersects with the postmodern problem of hermeneutics, dramatized through shared images of ending, 'Zero,' and entropy.  ...  exhaustion of literary experiment glimpsed in Beckett provides a bequest that is simultaneously energising and enervating.  ...  Finally, I wish to thank my Mum and Dad for their persistence and unquestioning support throughout the course of this PhD.  ...
