Rotation between two coordinate systems
Posted:
Jan 2, 2009 6:59 PM


Hey all,
Suppose I have orthonormal bases, i.e., each basis B consists of three unit vectors vx, vy, vz, that are orthogonal to each other. I want to find the rotation R between two bases B1 and B2, so that
R vx1 = vx2 R vy1 = vy2 R vz1 = vz2
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks.
Dave
