Hopefully it would be written so that even > mathematicians could understand it... ;-) But there _are_ nice books about the subject written by mathematicians :-) For example, as I recall, Vilenkin 1967 Special Functions and the Theory of Group Representations (Providence: American Mathematical Society) presents a readable account of the generalization of Eulerian angles to n-dimensions.
