Abstract

This study aims to provide an evaluation, through some simplifications, for the most forgiving throw positions in basketball throughout the playing field. Throws are modeled as differential equations and then solved numerically. These numerical solutions are checked against major events such as backboard or rim collision, score etc. and continue (afler a bounce) or terminate accordingly. A volumetric approach have been undertaken to summarize these throws into a positional graph which is also presented.
