The variable [phi] cSan be separated due to the axial symmetry of the structure, and with m being the Z-projection of the angular momentum, the corresponding wave function [[psi].sub.m]S(r, [phi], z) S= [e.sup.im[phi]][[psi].sub.m](r, z), m = 0, [+ or -] 1, [+ or -] 2, ..., satisfies the following wave equation:
The 3D data representing the 13 segment body model were input to a MATLAB (Mathworks, Inc.) analysis program enabling calculation of whole body centre of mass (CM), perpendicular distances of the right and left wrist and right and left ankle with respect to each axis of the internal reference system, segmental and whole body angular momentum, and torques about the internal reference axes (Sanders et al., 2015c).

Throughout this paper, the error growth is examined in terms of the global error in the position and velocity, and the relative error in terms of total energy and angular momentum of the system.
