I'm studying hard about ROS and gazebo.

Now I'm very confused about namespace.

Is there any difference in between /p3dx/base_link and p3dx/base_link?

Names that start with a "/" are global -- they are considered fully resolved. Global names should be avoided as much as possible as they limit code portability.
