- Combines theories of kinematics and behavior of mechanisms with the practical design of robots, machine parts, and machine systems into one comprehensive mechanical design book
- Offers the method of contour equations for the kinematic analysis of mechanicsl systems and dynamic force analysis
- Mathematica programs and packages for the analysis of mechanical systems
