Second, a moving part M is a polygonal region, which has three degrees of freedom (the translation movement in x and y directions, and the rotation motion in z direction), and [O.sub.1], [O.sub.2], [O.sub.3], and [O.sub.4] are obstacles (see Figure 8).
Figure 8(b) has listed obstacle avoidance planning paths for a polygonal region M, and dashed lines represent Ms posture.
Finally, path planning with obstacle avoidance for a single-point and polygonal region is conducted to validate the presented approach.
A software package implementing Schwarz-Christoffel Conformal transformation (or mapping) of doubly connected polygonal regions is fully described in this article from mathematical, numerical, and practical perspectives.

For example, with older children, one might investigate conjectures about the properties of semiregular, or Archimedean, solids, which are solids with identical vertices but composed of more than one kind of regular polygonal regions; with younger children, conjectures about classes of polygons, such as triangles, could be investigated.
