M A. p n (l) + t (n = 1 - 3) Where M A is Rotation for Co-Planarity, M B is rotation for Co-linearity t is Translation vector

13 Coordinate Transformation Least-Square Transformation Also involves global (G) and local (L) coordinate systems Transformation is represented by a single homogeneous coordinates with 4D vector & matrix representation. General Least-Square transformation matrix: AX = B The regression procedure is used: X = A + B Where A + is the pseudo-inverse of A (i.e.: (A T A) -1 A T, use QR) X is homogenous 4 x 4 transformation matrix. The transformation matrix or its inverse can be applied to local or global vector to determine the corresponding vector in the other system.
