This paper deals with the first and higher-order function-generation problems in the synthesis of linkages with relatively small input cranks. Such linkages tend to produce nearly simple harmonic motions at the output members. Owing to this distinction, the generality of the conventional synthesis techniques is no longer applicable. Thus, in function generation, only harmonic functions of the input motion may be expected to be synthesized for output motions.
