Computers are a fundamentally important tool in sport science research, sports performance analysis and, increasingly, in coaching and education programmes in sport. This book defines the field of ‘sport informatics’, explaining how computer science can be used to solve sport-related problems, in both research and applied aspects. Beginning with a clear explanation of the functional principles of hardware and software, the book examines the key functional areas in which computer science is employed in sport, including: knowledge discovery and database development data acquisition, including devices for measuring performance data motion tracking and analysis systems modelling and simulation match analysis systems e-learning and multimedia in sports education Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this book is important reading for any student, researcher or practitioner working in sport science, sport performance analysis, research methods in sport, applied computer science or informatics.

The use of computers in the sport and exercise sciences is now unquestioned. They are employed in the functioning of laboratory facilities, data collection, data handling and prediction of forthcoming outcomes. Recent advances are strongly affected by current developments in computer science and technology. In particular, progress in hardware (processor speed, storage capacity, communication technology), software (tools), information management concepts (data bases, data mining) and media (internet, eLearning, multimedia) gives a great impetus.This book, written by leading experts in the interdisciplinary field of sport and computer science, provides an overview on current fields of research and application covering fields such as virtual reality, ubiquitous computing, feedback systems and multimedia.

Sports fitness training is all about developing physical conditions to improve sports performance and skills. Sports training programs can help to improve strength flexibility and stamina to improve performance in specific sports. Options include increasing arm strength for tennis playing or improve strength and core stability providing better balance playing golf. Today's athletes are breaking records that many thought were untouchable-in large part due to the major advances in sports training. There are several universally accepted scientific training principles that must be followed in order to improve sports conditioning and performance. Because every athlete is different, each person's response to exercise will vary. This book provides the very best information and insights on sports fitness training. It combines explanations of modern methods with sample training programs, workouts and drills for successful application. The state-of-the art training prescriptions presented in this book will lead to the way to the future of athletic strength and conditioning. It will be very helpful to anyone looking to do any kind of training for sports or even for general conditioning. This is a complete training book which is the equivalent of a personal coach, trainer, and sports medicine doctor in one volume with Illustrations.

Sport management is the field of business dealing with sports and recreation. Some examples of sport managers include the front office system in professional sports, college sports managers, recreational sport managers, sports marketing, event management, facility management, sports economics, sport finance, and sports information. Today the facilities for sports and fitness programs resemble less and less the old gymnasiums and stadiums of the past. As competition increases among fitness centres and athletics and recreation programs, the quality of facilities must improve. Multiuse facilities, designed to accommodate a variety and non-profit organizations. The present book entitled Management of Sports and Physical Education is a marvellous effort by the author in the field of physical education and sports science, administration and management; it is especially intended for the students of various physical educational programs. Hopefully, the book will be useful for the students and teachers of physical education and sports, administrators, etc.

Modelling and simulation techniques are of central importance to conducting research in sport and exercise science, informing data collection and helping to analyze patterns of movement and physical performance. Modelling and Simulation in Sport and Exercise is the first book to offer an instructive reference for modelling and simulation methods for researchers and sport and exercise scientists. Based around a series of research cases, describing core theories in applied, practical settings, the book draws on examples of modelling and simulation in ball games, biomechanical analysis, physiological testing and monitoring, predictive analysis and sports engineering and product design. Each research case presents a central problem, discusses different modelling approaches that could be used to deal with the issue, analysis of results and a reflection on the methodology and an exercise for students to put the techniques discussed into practice. This is an important reference for any active researcher or upper-level student in sport and exercise science with an interest in mathematical modelling, computer science or simulation techniques.
