The article is the result of a Bachelor's thesis by computer science student Moritz Renkin and has been co-authored by Jonas Bischofberger and Prof. Arnold Baca. It discusses various approaches to modeling the trajectorial motion of football players and presents a method to validate these models. This validation is an important foundation for measuring, simulating, and understanding tactical behavior in sports games.
