Sounds interesting:) Are your routines able to regenerate the auler angles from the rotation? My problem is of a similar kind and might be good to look at:) Thanks, Johnny "David Park" <djmp at earthlink.net> wrote in message news:9ld1m6$2gi$1 at smc.vnet.net... > Johnny, > > If you have Mathematica Version 4, I may be able to help you. > > My Mathematica friend, Rip Pelletier, and I have been studying rotations > using Jack B.
