Numerical Methods in Kinematics

  • Reza N. Jazar


In robotic analysis, there exist problems and situations, such as inverse velocity kinematics, that we need to solve a set of coupled linear or nonlinear algebraic equations. Every numerical method of solving nonlinear equations also works by iteratively solving a set of linear equations.
