Abstract

This paper is devoted to developing the mathematical tools involved in describing angular orientation and equations of motion of rigid bodies, which are of considerable interest in themselves. Euler parameters are employed to derive interesting and useful identities. Physical interpretation of Euler parameters and their corresponding transformation matrices are discussed. Lagrange's equations of motion in terms of Euler parameters for a rigid body are presented.
