Abstract
This paper presents a numerical method able to compute all possible configurations of planar linkages. The procedure is applicable to rigid linkages (i.e., those that can only adopt a finite number of configurations) and to mobile ones (i.e., those that exhibit a continuum of possible configurations). The method is based on the fact that this problem can be reduced to finding the roots of a polynomial system of linear, quadratic, and hyperbolic equations, which is here tackled with a new strateg...
