Re: Juggling Patterns

    Scott - if you haven't already, you should track down a copy of  "the Mathematics of Juggling," which includes a chapter on change ringing.
    Or if you want a very recent book co-authored by someone you know, there is this:
  Arthur (one of the founders of the MIT juggling club in the 1970s) still attends when he's in town on Sunday, and still rings some.  Greg Russell juggles and rings.  There are pictures from the recent Orleans meeting of a several people juggling, I think.

Subject: Juggling Patterns

Hello all,

I came across the notation that jugglers use to describe their
patterns and found some similarities to our diagrams for methods. They
have a similar cyclic pattern to describe, but it took until the
mid-1980's for someone to try writing them down!

Here is a link to a textual description of the method:
And here is an hour-long talk given by one of the creators, which I
think was worth my time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNKFSpJIBO0

I hope some of you find these parallels interesting! Is there any
crossover between the ringers and the MIT Jugglers?
