**Mathematics of Human Motion: from Animation towards Simulation**

by A.I. Zhmakin

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 91

**Description**:

Simulation of human motion is the subject of study in a number of disciplines: Biomechanics, Robotics, Computer Animation, Control Theory, Neurophysiology, Medicine, Ergonomics. Since the author has never visited any of these fields, this review is indeed a passer-by's impression.
