Post-Hellenistic Philosophy A Study in Its Development from the Stoics to Origen


G. R. Boys-Stones, "Post-Hellenistic Philosophy: A Study in Its Development from the Stoics to Origen"
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0198152647, 0198857322 | PDF | pages: 246 | 8.7 mb

Screw Theory and its Application to Spatial Robot Manipulators


Screw Theory and its Application to Spatial Robot Manipulators
English | 2022 | ISBN: 0521630894 | 223 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
Discover a fresh take on classical screw theory and understand the geometry embedded within robots and mechanisms with this essential text. The book begins with a geometrical study of points, lines, and planes and slowly takes the reader toward a mastery of screw theory with some cutting-edge results, all while using only basic linear algebra and ordinary vectors. It features a discussion of the geometry of parallel and serial robot manipulators, in addition to the reciprocity of screws and a singularity study. All 41 essential screw systems are unveiled, establishing the possible freedom twists and constraint wrenches for a kinematic joint. Familiarizing the reader with screw geometry in order to study the statics and kinematics of robots and mechanisms, this is a perfect resource for engineers and graduate students.
