An early book on robot kinematics; however with an interesting set of derivations for Jacobians. The kinematics is based on transformation matrices and more modern concepts such as quaternions are not included.
VERY old. Almost completely out of date. It has some good information, but most of the methods in terms of programming, calculations have changed substantially since this ancient historical tome was published. I'll be more carefully checking publishing dates on books before I buy them.
4.0 out of 5 starsA good book, but only a close second

The notation in this book is quite a problem. John J. Craig's book "Introduction to Robotics, Mechanics and Control" does a better job with the notation and clairity of explanation. The math is perfectly applicable, once one gets through the notation. Since there are a few concepts in Paul's book that are not covered in Craig's, both books should be part of a library for anyone involved in the mathematics of robotics.
