Rotation of coordinate axes 1. Rotate axes x,y by angle about the z axis. The original orientation has subscript 0: x = x cos - y sin ; y = x sin + y cos with inverse relation x = x cos + y sin ; y = x sin + y cos 2. vector notation: boldface lower case is vector; boldface upper case is matrix: r = M r ; r = M T r 3. The notation M T denotes transpose. These are orthogonal matrices: the transpose is equal to the inverse (ck). 4. Rotate by angle about an arbitrary axis n (G, Sec. 4.7) (a) The component of r parallel to n is unaffected. r k = n ( r n ) (b) Before rotation, the component perpendicular to the axis is r , = r- n ( r n ) (c) A second vector perpendicular to this and to n is n r , = n r 1 (d) The rotation analogous to (1) is...
