    1313I have just returned from Dublin where I saw the bridge where WR Hamilton scratched his equation (not that this is important to the maths).  When implemented as a quaternion, the rotation matrix about X for an angle A is 
    14   
    15 `q = [cos(A/2), sin(A/2), 0, 0] {written as qw,qx,qy,qz}` 
    16

     16}}} 
    1717The euler angles are [A,0,0] BUT the matrices are:
