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 on advanced research on multi-robot subsystems, naturally motivated by the challenges posed by robot soccer, but certainly applicable to other domains: reasoning, multi-criteria decision-making, behavior and team coordination, etc.

The book covers many aspects of the research in mobile robotics. It deals with different aspects of the control problem, especially also under uncertainty and faults. Mechanical design issues are discussed along with new sensor and actuator concepts.

This book bridges the gap between playing with robots and studying robotics at upper undergraduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only calculus, matrices and probability.
