3D isometries
Posted:
Jan 24, 1996 7:32 PM


I'm looking for someone familiar with transformation geometry in 3D. I want to know what are the possible answer to a question like this one:
Given two isometric solids, what isometry map the firt onto the second ?
I know that a possibl answer is : a translation of vector (a,b,c). Another one is : a rotation around a given axe. I think that another one should be : a reflexion (or symetry) throught a plane. I also think that there should be another one that should be the product of a reflection an a translation.
Am I right ? Are there other possible answers ?
