Hi Ioannis, > Hello, I am defining a G4RotationMatrix to rotate a volume using: > > A = new G4RotationMatrix(G4ThreeVector(alpha1, alpha2, alpha3), > G4ThreeVector(beta1, beta2, beta3), > G4ThreeVector(gamma1, gamma2, gamma3)); > which specifically defines the rotation matrix according to the header file. alpha1, > alpha2, etc are all floats. I get the following warnings: > > ZMxpvNotOrthogonal: > > ZMxpvNotOrthogonal: col's X and Y supplied for Rotation are not close to orthogonal > at line 86 in file RotationC.cc ZMxpvNotOrthogonal: > ... > I checked, and the rotation matrix is not exactly orthogonal because transpose(A)*A > gives me almost the identity matrix but with small round off errors in the fourth > decimal place. Will I face a problem if I still use this RotationMatrix?
