This book is concerned primarily with the kinematic description and analysis of the spatial mechanical systems such as serial manipulators, parallel manipulators, and spatial mechanisms. However, a planar mechanical system is also considered whenever it helps to demonstrate and discuss a kinematic feature more neatly and clearly. Emphasis is placed on the analytical and semi-analytical methods in the treatment of the topics it covers, whilst purely numerical methods are kept beyond the scope of the book. It can serve as a supplementary text for graduate students, or as a reference book for researchers and professionals.
