Beyond thinking and analysis of our main champions, it is good to get back to what can be likened to a Billiards treatise.
The book "Billard - Théorie du jeu" [in English : "Billiards : Theory of the Game"] certified by the Federation of French Billiards is a modern version of the Science of Billiards, mainly based on the Coriolis's book. This version corrects many mistakes of the book (see CORIOLIS errata n2 in our Bibliography), complements and generalizes the equations in a 3D vector expression usefull to software designers.
First edition 1996, first printing in January 1997 (128 pages).

2. Second edition of the book ( Previous / Next Paragraph )

Second edition 2004 (revised and expanded version), first printing in June 2004 (192 pages).
Second edition 2004 (updated version of June 2006), first printing in June 2006 (192 pages).
