Useful summary of current research crossing computer and sport science. Primarily intended to introduce and explain current computing technologies in sports for sport scientists with some examples of their application in sport. The first chapter by Link and Lames is a particularly useful summary of the history and current definition of the subject an an essential read for anyone interested in this area. I also found the chapters on motion tracking and analysis systems and on ICT-ELT in sport particular useful for my research. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415715458, Hardcover)

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.
