Geometric Fundamentals of Robotics (Monographs in Computer Science)

Buy
Geometric Fundamentals of Robotics provides an elegant introduction to the geometric concepts that are important to applications in robotics. This second edition is still unique in providing a deep understanding of the subject: rather than focusing on computational results in kinematics and robotics, it includes significant state-of-the art material that reflects important advances in the field, connecting robotics back to mathematical fundamentals in group theory and geometry.

Key features:

* Begins with a brief survey of basic notions in algebraic and differential geometry, Lie groups and Lie algebras

* Examines how, in a new chapter, Clifford algebra is relevant to robot kinematics and Euclidean geometry in 3D

* Introduces mathematical concepts and methods using examples from robotics

* Solves substantial problems in the design and control of robots via new methods

* Provides solutions to well-known enumerative problems in robot kinematics using intersection theory on the group of rigid body motions

* Extends dynamics, in another new chapter, to robots with end-effector constraints, which lead to equations of motion for parallel manipulators

Geometric Fundamentals of Robotics serves a wide audience of graduate students as well as researchers in a variety of areas, notably mechanical engineering, computer science, and applied mathematics. It is also an invaluable reference text.
