Abstract:

This book explains the most general problems of the theory of gearing, but it represents only a part of Dr. Litvins accomplishments. His research contributions have improved 1 almost all types of gearing including spur, helical, hypoid, bevel, worm, and noncircular gears 2 tools for gear manufacture and 3 computer programs for simulation of meshing and contact. His theorems, methods for gear synthesis, and methods for gear generation represent a very significant contribution to the science of gearing.
