Hello All,
I have crusied the web, read the Mathematica help, and looked at many of the 
posted email questions but none answer my question. Maybe ya'll can help. I 
am working on a project that involves several different coordinate systems. 
These coordinate systems are arbitrarily set-up by me to easyily describe 
that part of the system. I will have to be able to write the position, 
velocity, acceleration, etc. vectors in terms of these several different 
coordinates. All the unit vectors are orthogonal and right-handed. I also 
have all the angles involved in the rotation from one coordinate system to 
another. Is their any way to set-up a rotation matrices so that this can 
easily be done? Does any one have an example that I can follow? Any help you 
can offer will be greatly appreciated. Can you refrence me to any sources to 
examine. Are there any Mathematica user groups where daily postings are 

Thanks again,
Jason Rupert
