Yes, it is the Jacobian transpose. The Shadmehr site you cited has been reorganized. The "Forces and torques" chapter is linked to by the lab's publication page. The F&T chapter has the usual misleadingly concise expression for the Jacobian (unnumbered, following Eq. 9). It uses derivatives of Eq. 9, itself a nasty expression to work with by ...

You should decide whether you would like built-in visualization tools or a coordinate frame management system, or something a little more bare-bones. As stated, transformations.py is bundled with ROS tf and therefore is commonly used around the ROS community. It is primarily useful for constructing raw rotation matrices and homogeneous transformation ...

In Lagrangian mechanics, you're required to deal with the generalized forces and the concept of virtual work $\delta W$. In our case we have: $$ \delta W_{F_x} = F_x \cdot \delta q_1 + F_x \left( -l_2s_2\right) \cdot \delta q_2, $$ where the coefficients of the terms $\delta q_i$ are given by $F_x \frac{\partial x_m}{\partial q_i}$. By contrast, $y_m$ doesn'...
