Short summary
In this study, we want to design a 4R linkage so that a point on its coupler can pass through the four specified positions. However, for most synthesis problems, the number of feasible solutions in the solution domain is seriously insufficient. Therefore, a solutions map method was proposed to realize the visualization of the solution domain and a telomere genetic algorithm (TGA) was proposed to optimize solutions map, so as to improve the number and proportion of feasible solutions.
