The author discusses simulation problems of rigid-body dynamics with discontinuities cuased by impact and friction. A numerical formulation based on polygonal friction cone is proposed to simulate the motion of rigid body with impact and friction. The dynamical process of a thrown ball falling and colliding with one of three balls on a flat table is demonstrated as a numerical example. The convergence of the numerical scheme is discussed. Some open questions are put forward.
