"""
The transformation matrices returned from the functions in this file assume
the points on which the transformation will be applied are column vectors.
i.e. the R matrix is structured as
R = [
[Rxx, Rxy, Rxz],
[Ryx, Ryy, Ryz],
[Rzx, Rzy, Rzz],
] # (3, 3)
This matrix can be applied to column vectors by post multiplication
by the points e.g.
points = [[0], [1], [2]] # (3 x 1) xyz coordinates of a point
transformed_points = R * points
To apply the same matrix to points which are row vectors, the R matrix
can be transposed and pre multiplied by the points:
e.g.
points = [[0, 1, 2]] # (1 x 3) xyz coordinates of a point
transformed_points = points * R.transpose(1, 0)
