## Homework Statement

Suppose I define a linear coordinate transformation that I can describe with a matrix U.

If U is unitary. i.e.

[tex]U^{-1}U = UU^{-1}=1[/tex]

does that necessarily imply that the transformation corresponds to a pure rotation (plus maybe a translation), so that I may assume that volumes are invariant?
