Abstract [en]

Using a set of landmarks to represent a rigid body, a rotation of the body can be determined in least-squares sense as the solution of an orthogonal Procrustes problem. We discuss some geometrical properties of the condition number for the problem of determining the orthogonal matrix representing the rotation. It is shown that the condition number critically depends on the configuration of the landmarks. The problem is also reformulated as an unconstrained nonlinear least-squares problem and the condition number is related to the geometry of such problems. In the common 3-D case, the movement can be represented by using a screw axis. Also the condition numbers for the problem of determining the screw axis representation are shown to closely depend on the configuration of the landmarks. The condition numbers are finally used to show that the used algorithms are stable.
