A Mathematical Introduction to Robotic Manipulation
by Richard M. Murray, Zexiang Li, S. Shankar Sastry
Publisher: CRC Press 1994
Number of pages: 474
A Mathematical Introduction to Robotic Manipulation presents a mathematical formulation of the kinematics, dynamics, and control of robot manipulators. It uses an elegant set of mathematical tools that emphasizes the geometry of robot motion and allows a large class of robotic manipulation problems to be analyzed within a unified framework.

The book provides answers by developing a general principle - homeokinesis, the dynamical symbiosis between brain, body and environment -that is shown to drive robots to self-determined, individual development in a playful and embodiment-related way.
