Football curves

Abstract : Straight lines, zigzag, parabolas (possibly truncated), circles and spirals are the main curves which can be observed in football (in the European sense, soccer elsewhere). They are, respectively, associated to heavy kick, knuckleball, lob and banana kicks. We discuss their physical origin and determine their respective domain of existence. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
