A new factorization of the mass matrix for optimal serial and parallel calculation of multibody dynamics

Featherstone, Roy; Fijany, Amir


This paper describes a new factorization of the inverse of the joint-space inertia matrix M. In this factorization, M-1 is directly obtained as the product of a set of sparse matrices wherein, for a serial chain, only the inversion of a block-tridiagonal
