A group theoretical formalization of contact motion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The work reported in this paper applies group theory to characterize local surface contact among solids, and makes such a for-malization computationally tractable. This paper serves three purposes: (1) to report a new treatment of contacting surfaces as oriented sets and to verify the consistency of their corresponding symmetry groups in a group theoretical formalization framework; (2) to give a concise sum-mary of this group theoretical approach, from theory, to algorithms, to applications; (3) to pinpoint some unsolved problems and possible future directions.
