  • Euler's theorem (rotation) [r]: In three-dimensional space, any rotation of a rigid body is around an axis, the rotation axis. [e]
  • Rotation matrix [r]: a 3×3 proper (unit determinant) orthogonal (orthonormal rows and columns) matrix [e]
  • Spherical polar coordinates [r]: Angular coordinates on a sphere: longitude angle φ, colatitude angle θ [e]
  • Rigid rotor [r]: A 3-dimensional rigid object rotating around its center of mass. [e]
  • Wigner D-matrix [r]: matrix in an irreducible representation of the groups SU(2) and SO(3); quantum mechanical symmetric top eigenfunctions. [e]
