Homework Help: Rotation transformation by poisson brackets

  1. Jan 3, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Can anybody suggest hints on how to show that x'=xcosΘ-ysinΘ, y'=xsinΘ+ycosΘ by using the infinite string of poisson brackets?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Sorry, I just can’t think of any way, substituting doesn’t work.
