THE GEOMETRY OF THE EULER ANGLES Academic Article uri icon


  • The Euler angles are shown to provide a simple means for understanding some of the fundamental results of spherical trigonometry. Spherical trigonometry, in turn, is used to develop a compact expression for the composition of two sets of Euler angles and other relations.
