Put together here a list of books (like the one for C/C++ on StackOverflow) that are spiritually similar to Sebastian Thrun's Probabilistic Robotics for robotic manipulation and mechanics.
Thrun's book is a wonderful resource for implementable algorithms while also dealing with the mathematics/theory behind them. In somewhat similar vein for robotic mechanics there is "A Mathematical Introduction to Robotic Manipulation - S.Sastry, Z.Li and R.Murray" which has a lot of mathematical/theoretical content. What is missing however in this book are the algorithms concerned with how should/would one go about implementing the theoretical stuff.
- Ideally list books dealing with diverse areas of robotics.
- The books have to present algorithms like what Thrun does in his book.
- Algorithms presented have to be language agnostic and as much as possible not be based on packages like MATLAB in which case they should be categorized appropriately.
