Abstract:

A linkage is a connected collection of rigid but articulated rods. If the number of missing connections between vertices is k then the shape of the linkage can be represented by a point in the phase space R superscript k. For each integer r, 1 or r or n where n 1 is the number of vertices of the linkage the paper presents a method of determining the set of those points of R superscript k, furnishing a shape of the linkage that lies in the space E sub r, but not in E sub r-1.
