Physics engines are gaining importance in the area of computer games to create better visual experiences. In the context of networked Virtual Reality (VR) applications they can be useful to provide new interaction possibilities. This paper will provide an introduction into the area of physics simulation and the use of it to create more realistic and interactive multi-user virtual worlds. Examples for the usefulness of such physics engines can be found in a variety of training applications.
