The definitions and other properties used in the proofs are given below: Definition: An n n matrix A over R is said to be orthonormal iff A t A = I . Equivalently, A 1 = A t . Lemma: The following are equivalent. ( i ) A is orthonormal. ( ii ) Ax.Ay = x.y for all vectors x and y . ( iii ) The columns of A are mutually orthogonal unit vectors. Proof. The equivalence of (i) and (iii) is trivial. To prove that (i) implies (ii), assume that A is orthonormal then Ax.Ay = ( Ax ) t ( Ay ) = x t A t Ay = x t Iy = x t y = x.y To prove that (ii) implies (i), assume that Ax.Ay = x.y for all x and y , then we have e i .e j = e i .e j e t i e j = Ae i .Ae j e t i Ie j = e t i A t Ae j e t i Ie j e t i A t Ae j = 0 e t i ( I A t A ) e j = 0 I A t A = 0 A t A = I Therefore A is orthonormal. Definition: Let SO n be the set of all n n orthonormal matrices A such that det A = 1. Theorem: A is a 2 dimensional rotation matrix if and only if A SO 2 . Proof: = Let A be a 2D rotation matrix, then A t A = " cos  sin sin cos #" cos sin  sin cos # = " cos 2 + sin 2 cos sin  sin cos sin cos  cos sin sin 2 + cos 2 # = " 1 0 0 1 # = I 1...
