Jerk: The Time Rate of Change of Acceleration.
Schot, Steven H.
American Journal of Physics, v46 n11 p1090-94 Nov 1978
Explains the concept of jerk and resolves it, for planar motion, into two components: tangential-normal and radial-transverse. Expresses the normal component in terms of an affine differential invariant, the aberrancy. Uses aberrancy properties to establish geometrical properties of the jerk vector for plane motion. (GA)
