Dear Biomch-L readers,

The following message appeared on Usenet last week. As far as I
know, Maple is a software environment for symbolic algebra
(similar to Mathematica) which was developed by the University
of Waterloo.

A maple file which implements the newton EULER Dynamic Equations
of motion has been posted to the following sight. Given the Denivit
Hartenburg parameters and initial conditions of a robot all dynamic
equations of motion are solved for symbolically. Happy modeling!
