Does anyone know where I can find the generators of the group of rotations in four dimensions?

thanks!

This is an example of miscommunication between pure mathematicians and theoretical physicists, for whom the term "generators of the group" means quite different things.

Here, I think kaksmet was looking for a basis for the 6-dimensional Lie algebra of the Lie group of rotations on R^4.
