a category of conversions of multidimensional spaces wherein the axis system stays at 90-degree angles. Commonly referred to as rigid rotation.

ORTHOGONAL ROTATION: "The orthogonal rotation was helpful in allowing the scientists to presume the angles in subsequent systems would be the same as previous ones."
