Description: | It is common to describe a rotation in terms of Euler angles. This interactive exercise defines the orientation of the grain with respect to the specimen geometry. By using sliders the system x, y, z can be rotated around axes by angles (Euler angles) until each of the axes becomes parallel to a corresponding pllane AB, BC and CA. Three Euler angles φ_{1}, Φ and φ_{2} uniquely define the rotation of x, y, z into A, B, C and hence uniquely define the orientation of the cell/grain. |

Keywords: | Euler angles • rotation |
