Example text

By convention, the axis of rotation always passes through the origin, and thus the rotation fixes the origin. 14 on page 37 illustrates the action of Rθ,u on a point v. Clearly, Rθ,u is a linear transformation and is rigid and orientation-preserving. 4 below shows that every rigid, orientation-preserving, linear transformation in 3-space is a rotation.

3 is correct. 4 Every rigid, orientation-preserving, affine transformation is either a translation or a generalized rotation. Obviously, the converse of this theorem holds too. Proof Let A be a rigid, orientation-preserving, affine transformation. Let u = A(0). 2 implies that A is a rotation. So suppose u = 0. It will suffice to prove that either A is a translation or there is some point v ∈ R2 that is a fixed point of A, that is, such that A(v) = v. 2 shows that A is a generalized rotation around v.

If A(u) = u + u, then A must be the translation Tu . This follows because, again by the rigidity of A, every point x ∈ L must map to x + u and, by the rigidity and orientation-preserving properties, the same holds for every point not on L. On the other hand, if A(u) = 0, then rigidity implies that v = 12 u is a fixed point of A, and thus A is a generalized rotation around v. Second, suppose that the line L is mapped to a different line L . 8. Since L = L, θ is nonzero and is not a multiple of 180◦ .
