It has been the practice at the University of Missouri to follow the course in sophomore calculus with several weeks in applications to mechanics, a subject rich in the kind of material desired. This book is a formulation of the work there attempted.

We develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by a number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian or the Hamiltonian.

An important reference for any researcher in kinematics, it covers many important results for analysis and design of mechanisms. The authors used the adjective theoretical in the title in order to distinguish the subject from applied kinematics.
