This text/reference represents the first balanced treatment of graphical and analytical methods for kinematic analysis and synthesis of linkages (planar and spatial) and higher-pair mechanisms (cams and gears) in a single-volume format. A significant amount of excellent German literature in the field that previously was not available in English provides extra insight into the subject. Plenty of solved problems and exercise problems are included to sharpen your skills and demonstrate how theory is put into practice.
