Mobility studies in multiloop spatial linkages [thesis]

Min Hu
This thesis is mainly concerned with problems associated with the generation of new mobile solutions for multiloop networks, especially Kempe's linkages and their derivatives, both in the plane and in space. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the whole work. It gives a brief review of the I would like to thank all who have helped me in completing this work.
