## Main Question or Discussion Point

Folks,

I have a book Gear Geometry and Applied Theory by Litvin. It looks pretty hairy and the diagrams/schematics of the kinematic relations etc are difficult to understand.

What branch of mathematics does this fall under, diferential geometry and topology?

I think I may need to get some introductory book before I delve into this gear theory...

Any suggestions?

Thanks
