i'm trying to implement Featherstone's ABA so i decided to read Bullet implementation and came across this expression
   //zeroAccSpatFrc[i+1].setVector(-(rot_from_world[i+1] * linkAppliedTorque), -(rot_from_world[i+1] * linkAppliedForce ))

      angDampMult * m_links[i].m_inertiaLocal * spatVel[i+1].getAngular() * (DAMPING_K1_ANGULAR + DAMPING_K2_ANGULAR * spatVel[i+1].getAngular().safeNorm()),
      linDampMult * m_links[i].m_mass * spatVel[i+1].getLinear() * (DAMPING_K1_LINEAR + DAMPING_K2_LINEAR * spatVel[i+1].getLinear().safeNorm())

   //zeroAccSpatFrc[i+1].addAngular(spatVel[i+1].getAngular().cross(m_links[i].m_inertiaLocal * spatVel[i+1].getAngular()));            
   //zeroAccSpatFrc[i+1].addLinear(m_links[i].m_mass * spatVel[i+1].getAngular().cross(spatVel[i+1].getLinear()));

which doesn't appear in featherstone's book

i understood this is sort of damping from constant names but where does this come from?

IIRC the squared omega (angular velocity) terms lead to simulation instabilities in practice. So Bullet added damping to improve stability.
