Kinematics is an exciting area of computational mechanics which plays a central role in a great variety of fields and industrial applications. Apart from research in pure kinematics, the field offers
Introduction to Theoretical Kinematics provides a uniform presentation of the mathematical foundations required for studying the movement of a kinematic chain that makes up robot arms
on kinematics, the geometry of rigid-body motion, which is an integral part of machine design theory. The challenges to kinematics researchers presented by general-purpose machines such as the manipulator
This is the first volume of three, devoted to Mechanics. This book contains classical mechanics problems including kinematics and statics. It is recommended as a supplementary textbook
Robotic manipulators are becoming increasingly important in research and industry, and an understanding of statics and kinematics is essential to solving problems in this field. This book, written
of the Critical State Theory. Exercises and solutions are provided that will be particularly useful for the reader.
