Structural Synthesis of Kinematic Chains Using Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors

S.F.Patil and S.C.Pilli

ABSTRACT: Several methods are available to detect isomorphism among kinematic chains but each has its own shortcomings. A method based on eigenvalues and eigenvectors of adjacent matrices of kinematic chains is proposed in this paper. This method is reliable and straightforward. Illustrations show the isomorphic test on counter examples.
