Rotation matrices, which are three-by-three orthonormal matrices with determinant equal to plus one, constitute the special orthogonal group of rigid-body rotations, denoted SO(3). Owing to the three-by-three nature of rotation matrices plus their orthonormality constraint, parameterizations are often used in favor of rotation matrices for computations and derivations. For example, Euler angles and Rodrigues parameters are common three-parameter unconstrained parameterizations, while unit-length quaternions are a popular four-parameter constrained parameterization. In this paper various identities associated with the parameterization of SO(3) are considered. In particular, we present six identities, three related to unconstrained parameterizations and three related to constrained parameterizations. We also discuss rotation matrix perturbations. The utility of these identities is highlighted when deriving the motion equations of a rigid body using Lagrange's equation. We also use them to examine some issues associated with spacecraft attitude determination.
