    Hello. Sorry for my English

    There are - rotation matrix (that performs transformation from associated coordinate system to static coordinate system ) and - angular velocity. The matrix depends on parameters (for example, Euler angles). I need to express as function of .

    Let - components of vector in the associated coordinate system: and . Than variation of vector :

    On the other hand if I rotate about on angle then variation of equals: , where .

    Comparing with , we get the following expression for omega:

    Is it right?

    Sorry, its been a long time since I did anything with transformation matrices, and even back then, I wasn't very good with them.

    You may have better luck re-posting on the Mathematics forum.
