In 1989-1992, Dr. George Onoda, who was then a researcher at IBM's main lab, wrote a series of seven technical articles for Billiards Digest. With permission of George and BD, I have put those articles on-line as item 37 on the page http://www.sfbilliards.com/misc.htm

Topics included break speed, "perfect" draw, half-ball caroms, an analysis of where balls go on nine ball breaks, sighting kiss shots, safety play, maximum spin, skid/cling, and the geometry of stun shots.

What do you mean "so rare here"?

Bob always posts useful information...

But,I must admit, there are some weird questions. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Tom, Didn't mean it the way you read it...Bob always has good info, and has a great school there in SF.
Nobody is more guilty then I, of not adding anything useful
to the pool side of this discussion board...I just enjoyed reading all the articles, and was trying to be complimentary

Excellent stuff. And what a wonderful bonus to see that you've de-bundled your articles.

Thank you!

FYI to all, I have links to pool physics articles and resources from me, Bob, George, and others in the Physics Resources section of my website (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~dga/pool/physics.html). If you like understanding the physical principles behind pool, check them out.

Regards,
Dave

JAL was referring to the fact that a bunch of articles were bundled into single, large PDFs at first. I have now de-bundled all of my articles through September 2005 and they are much easier to download as individual files.

It's not in mine either. I guess it's a sad commentary on our times when someone who received C's, D's, E's and F's in english (on a good day) knows more than the lexicagraphers. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif I meant the opposite of "to bundle up", in other words "to separate out".

For what it's worth, I did read your post as you intended it. But now I'm wondering which category mine fall into (don't answer that).
