Resting contact and oscillation

Recommended Posts

Say I've got a box on a flat surface affected by gravity. I calculate the normal force and apply it to the supporting vertex (i.e. box corner). The box sits on the surface but oscillates from side to side. I believe this is a common problem (caused by the fact of discrete time steps)? How should it be handled? Altenatively, any links to online material covering this problem would cool.

Any help much appreciated,

I'd suggest Erin Catto (of Box2D)'s GDC presentations using accumulated sequential impulses.
