As a result, the centroidal dynamics can be indirectly stabilized using a simple VRPbased control law to regulate the DCM position where the commanded VRP is mapped to a corresponding linear momentum rate of change objective using Eq.
It is well known that the velocity of the phase boundary can be calculated by means of the jump relation corresponding to the balance of linear momentum [15], which can be represented in a one-dimensional case as
It is a conserved quantity, just like linear momentum, so it can be transferred from one place to another but never created or destroyed.
The linear momentum density is given by the Poynting vector E x B and the angular momentum is the cross product of the Poynting vector with the position vector.
