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.

This volume contains much of the basic theory of mechanics and should prove to be a useful foundation for further, as well as more specialized topics. As the name of the book implies, a consistent theme running through the book is that of symmetry.

The purpose of this text is to provide the students with the theoretical background and engineering applications of the three dimensional mechanics of a rigid body. Covered are three-dimensional kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies.
