Forensics
The path of a projectile through space, resulting from the forces acting on it—e.g., thrust, wind and gravity.
 
System dynamics
The solution to a dynamical system in forward and backward time, passing through a specified initial condition.
 
Theoretical medicine
The representation of the behaviour of a system in a state-space over a short period of time; a trajectory is one cycle on a phase-plane plot.
