TOWARDS AN INTEGRATIVE FRAMEWORK FOR UNDERSTANDING SPORT-RELATED PHENOMENA

Pablo Vázquez, Natàlia Balagué, Robert Hristovski

A high disciplinary specialization in sports science has promoted its current fragmentation and a lack of transfer of knowledge among scientists. The Nonlinear Dynamical Systems Theory (NDST), which has already undertaken a paradigm shift in several scientific fields, offers key concepts and a common language which can provide a unified framework for the study of sport-related phenomena. The objective of this paper is to make a quick overview of seemingly unconnected sport-related behavior can be studied by using the same dynamic principles and concepts. Several experiments where different collective variables are tested under the influence of different types of constraints are presented to illustrate how sport related phenomena share similar principles and sport science can be integrated.
