'CwMtx' provides the matrix and vector operations used in engineering and science problems, particularly the quaternion class which implements quaternion math. Quaternions are useful for attitude determination in 3D space because they do not suffer from singularities. Furthermore, successive rotations and transformations of vectors can be accomplished by simple quaternion multiplication. Attitude dynamics can be expressed in a very compact form using quaternions.
