Hello, I am examining the torque-time characteristics of bowlers in
cricket. I wish to compare the torque curves of different fast bowlers by
obtaining a measure of "closeness" or "similarity". How do I do this? For
instance, if one is comparing two curves, a simple method would be to
average the differences in magnitude between corresponding points, i.e.
find the deviation between the curves. What are the standard ways of
quantitatively comparing two or more curves in biomechanics?
