I have two matrices in a given axes ($K_1 \:\&\: K_2$) and their dimensions are ($2\times 3\:\:\:\&\:\:\:3\times 2$) respectively, now the axes were rotated by an angle $\theta$, the values of ($K_1 \:\&\: K_2$) in the new axes must be changed.
for ($2\times2$) matrix, it is easy to use the transfer matrix $A$,$$A=\pmatrix{\:\:\:\cos\theta &\sin\theta\\-\sin\theta&\cos\theta}$$ and by using the relation below the new $K$ matrix can be found:$$K' = A^T K A$$

My question is, how can I apply the above procedure for $K_1 \:\&\: K_2$?

  • $\begingroup$ This is not possible with the specific matrix dimensions you provided due to matrix multiplication rules. $\endgroup$ – J_Nat Aug 19 '16 at 14:54
  • $\begingroup$ @J_Nat I know so I ask, is there any way to modify the $A$ matrix to be $2\times3$ or $3\times2$? $\endgroup$ – Muhammad Abdulrasool Aug 19 '16 at 15:01

  • $\begingroup$ @MuhammadAbdulrasool You should try to be more straight forward with what you are asking in the future. I interpreted your question as you just wanted a function using the A and K's you gave. $\endgroup$ – J_Nat Aug 19 '16 at 15:15
