This class represents the orientation between two arbitrary frames A and D associated with a Spacefixed (extrinsic) XYZ rotation by "rollpitchyaw" angles [r, p, y]
, which is equivalent to a Bodyfixed (intrinsic) ZYX rotation by "yawpitchroll" angles [y, p, r]
.
The rotation matrix R_AD
associated with this rollpitchyaw [r, p, y]
rotation sequence is equal to the matrix multiplication shown below.
Di = Ci = Bi = Ai (i = x, y, z)
where Dx, Dy, Dz and Ax, Ay, Az are orthogonal unit vectors fixed in frames D and A respectively. Similarly for Bx, By, Bz and Cx, Cy, Cz in frame B, C. Then D is subjected to successive righthanded rotations relative to A. r
about Dx = Cx
. Note: D and C are no longer aligned. p
about Cy = By
. Note: C and B are no longer aligned. y
about Bz = Az
. Note: B and A are no longer aligned. The monogram notation for the rotation matrix relating A to D is R_AD
.T  The scalar type, which must be one of the default scalars.
