View this tutorial full metadata

We study the mathematics behind the Peaucellier-Lipkin linkage in three problems:

Problem 1. Circles in the Plane, which explores some geometry of circles.

Problem 2. Inversions in Circles, which explores properties of inversion in circles.

Problem 3. Applications of Inversions to the Peaucellier-Lipkin Linkage, which explores the applications of Problems 1 and 2 to an understanding of the linkage.
