Subject: Rotation matrix in N dimensions
I'm looking for an explicit representation for a general rotation

matrix in N dimensions. I have been able to find a representation in

terms of the product of N(N-1)/2 Givens rotation matrices (that being

the number of degrees of freedom for an N-dimensional rotation

matrix), but this doesn't give me easy access to the individual

elements of the final rotation matrix. Is there an explicit formula

for the individual elements?

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Shivani
