An example of uniform motion along a generalized coordinate using the Draghilev method. (This post was inspired by school example in one of the forums.)
The equations used in the program are very simple and, I think, do not require any special comments. DM is a procedure that implements the Draghilev method with "partial parameterization".

When K = 1, parameterization is carried out by changing the angle of rotation of the wheel. That is, uniform rolling is carried out.

For K = 4, the coordinate corresponding to the position of the slider is parametrized.


When K = 6, the slider moves with acceleration, according to a given equation. Hence, we have carried out the parameterization with respect to “time”.

With the help of such techniques, we can obtain the calculation of the kinematics of both lever mechanisms and various types of manipulators.

It seems to me that Draghilev's method can be applied quite successfully to the solution of Diophantine equations. Here is a simple example where we find two solutions at the intersection line of two ellipsoids:

Solutions: (11, -4, -26) and (10, 1, 29).


Based on the text of the program, it is possible to solve various examples with Diophantine equations.

f3 is an auxiliary equation for finding the starting point, NPar is a procedure that implements the Draghilev method, the red color of the text is the place where the integer values of the points on the integral curve are filtered.

 Can be compared with the solution of the
isolve function

  f1 := x1^2-x1*x2+x2^2+x2*x3+x3^2-961;
  f2 := (x1-3)^2+10*x2^2+x3^2-900;
  isolve({f1, f2})


For a long time I could not understand how to make a kinematic analysis of this device based on the coupling equations (like here). The equations were drawn up relative to the ends of the grips (horns), that is, relative to the coordinates of 4 points. That's 12 equations. But then only a finite number of mechanism positions take place (as shown by RootFinding[Isolate]). It turns out that there is no continuous transition between these positions. Then it is natural to assume that the movement can be obtained with the help of a small deformation. It seemed that if we discard the condition of a constant distance between the midpoints of the horns (this is the f7 equation at the very beginning), then this will allow us to obtain minimal distortion during movement. In fact, the maximum distortion during the movement was in the second decimal place.

The left racks are input.

The first text is used to calculate the trajectory, and the other two show design options based on the data received.
For data transfer, a disk called E is used.

One way to show all solutions of a polynomial in one variable.
The root is the intersection of curves representing the imaginary part of the equation (red) and the real part (blue). These equations are obtained after representing the variable as the sum of its imaginary and real parts. The circle limits the area where all the roots are located (according to theory).
Example      -15*x^7+x^2+I*x+2=0;

As always, it's just about drawings.
The parametric equation of a circle has 3 variables and two equations. In 3-dimensional space, a circle is a spiral, but we only need one projection of this spiral into 2-dimensional space, and we also know how  the rest 2 it's projections on flat space look.
If we look at the equation of the sphere in parametric form, we will see that these are 3 equations and 5 variables:
x1 = sin(x4)*cos(x5); 
x2 = sin(x4)*sin(x5); 
x3 = cos(x4);
And so I wanted to see how the remaining 9 projections of the sphere onto 3-dimensional space look. It is very easy to do this with Maple.
