Summary:
"This book presents the mathematical theory of design for articulated systems called linkages. Robot manipulators, walking machines, and mechanical hands are examples of these systems, all of which rely on simple mechanical constraints to provide a complex workspace for an end-effector." "The emphasis of this text is on linkage systems with fewer degrees of freedom than that of a typical robot arm and, therefore,
