Rotation matrix in N dimensions
Posted:

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(N1)/2 Givens rotation matrices (that being the number of degrees of freedom for an Ndimensional 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
