CoM, centre of mass; PE, potential energy; KE,kinetic energy.

Style refers to brachiation technique: cc, continuous-contact brachiation;ric, ricochetal brachiation.

Example Run B shows parameters for two conditions: L, the CoM to handhold length observed for the first swing; L′, that observed at the bottom of the second.
