public Rotater(java.lang.String order, double phi, double theta, double psi)
A rotation is positive when the reference frame rotates anticlockwise as seen looking towards the origin from the positive region of the specified axis.
The characters of ORDER define which axes the three successive rotations are about. A typical value is 'ZXZ', indicating that RMAT is to become the direction cosine matrix corresponding to rotations of the reference frame through PHI radians about the old Zaxis, followed by THETA radians about the resulting Xaxis, then PSI radians about the resulting Zaxis.
The axis names can be any of the following, in any order or combination: X, Y, Z, uppercase or lowercase, 1, 2, 3. Normal axis labelling/numbering conventions apply; the xyz (=123) triad is righthanded. Thus, the 'ZXZ' example given above could be written 'zxz' or '313' (or even 'ZxZ' or '3xZ'). ORDER is terminated by length or by the first unrecognized character.
Fewer than three rotations are acceptable, in which case the later angle arguments are ignored. If all rotations are zero, the identity matrix is produced.
