Mathematics' mortua manus

Discovering dexterity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Dexterous manipulation, a major subfield of robotics and manufacturing, experienced a mathematical rebirth in the mid 80's, when this nascent field established many beautiful connections to convexity theory and computational geometry. Jack Schwartz played a seminal role in its inception and development. Here, I speculate on where Jack might have liked this field to go in the future.
