Rotation Operator

The rotation operator can be derived from examining an Infinitesimal Rotation

\left({d\over dt}\right)_{\rm space}= \left({d\over dt}\right)_{\rm body}+\boldsymbol{\omega}\times,

where $d/dt$ is the time derivative, $\boldsymbol{\omega}$ is the Angular Velocity, and $\times$ is the Cross Product operator.
