Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was dealing with co-ordinate transformations for transforming a vector from one coordintae system to another.

I realized that if acoordinate transformation matrix happens to be symmetric(which is not the case in general) then it means it is not transforming at all (orit duplicates the vector)

It think it is a property of transformation matrix.

I admit in practise we dont encounter any transformation matrix which is symmetric.

Could you please comment on my perception of this idea.

thanks
