The act of turning, as a wheel or a solid body on its axis, as distinguished from the progressive motion of a revolving round another body or a distant point; thus, the daily turning of the earth on its axis is a rotation; its annual motion round the sun is a revolution.

In the context of spins and qubits, a rotation around by an angle is an operation of the form . The operator may be any unit combination of Pauli matrices. This defines an axis in three-space, and in the Bloch sphere representation, the operation has the effect suggested by the terminology.
Geometric transformation involving a change of orientation.
Digital video effect where the image is rotated about some predetermined axis. The axis itself may rotate to create complex effects.

a transformation under which a point or shape is rotated (turned) around a fixed point.
the act of rotating as if on an axis; "the rotation of the dancer kept time with the music"
(mathematics) a transformation in which the coordinate axes are rotated by a fixed angle about the origin
a single complete turn (axial or orbital); "the plane made three rotations before it crashed"; "the revolution of the earth about the sun takes one year"

a geometric transformation that changes the orientation of an object, extended light source or viewpoint
a half turn on the axis, while holding the center piece
a linear transformation which can be represented by a orthogonal matrix A with
a linear transformation which preserves (Euclidean) distances
an example of a rigid transformation
a transformation about a fixed point such that every point in the object turns through the same angle relative to that fixed point
a transformation that changes the orientation of an object (the way that it's facing)
a planet's spin on its own axis.
the spin of a planet about its axis of rotation
A transformation obtained by rotating a figure around a fixed point (i.e., turning a figure about a point).
All. When you throw your arm and shoulder into a turn, that's rotation. You can wind up and release and swing your shoulder into a turn, like a baseball swing has a windup and swing.
The amount of time that it takes to turn completely around. For the Earth this takes 24 hours and is commonly referred to as a day. (See Pinhole Camera Observatory and Modeling the Earth-Sun System )
Spinning around an axis. The Earth rotates once every day.

The spin given to the ball at the moment of delivery.
The spinning of a body. The Earth completes one rotation every 24 hours.
The spinning of a planet or other objects on its axis.
A transformation that moves all points around the center of rotation. A rotation maintains each point's distance to the center of rotation and to each other.
the spin on a body's axis
Term used in describing displacement of fracture fragments. There is rotation of the distal fragment (relative to the proximal fragment) along the long axis of the bone. This may be external or internal
twisting around a central axis.

Moving in one line of the body's axis.
Move around a fixed axis
the spinning of a celestial body (like Earth) on an imaginary axis

In reference to joint movement, turning motion which is possible at ball-and-socket joints (such as the hips and shoulders) and at the trunk of the body.
Motion of an object where the path of every point is a circle or circular arc. A rotation is defined by a point and vector which determine the axis of rotation. The direction of the vector is the direction of the axis and the magnitude of the vector is the angle of rotation. Scalar: A mathematical entity which has a numeric value but no direction (in contrast to a vector).
The spinning of a body on its own axis. Earth rotates once a day. See also revolution, which is often confused with rotation.
Movement of a bone around its long (longitudinal) axis.

a transformation of a figure by turning it about a center point or axis. The amount of rotation is usually expressed in the number of degrees (e.g., a 90º rotation). Also called a Turn.

A change with location of a figure by turning it about a point
A particular type of simple transformation on a binary search tree (see binary search tree) that changes local structure without changing inorder traversal (see inorder traversal) ordering. See section 5.3 Rotations, 9.2 Rotations, 12.3 Rotations, and 15.2 Rotations, for more details.
the spin of a galaxy, star, planet, moon, or asteroid about a central axis
The spin of a body about its axis.
Played with the full ball set, the object is to build a score by potting balls of increasing value. The ball values correspond to the numbers on the balls. The usual score to play to is 61 - the first player to reach 61 wins. The lowest numbered ball on the table must always be hit first, although it does not matter which order the balls are potted in. If a ball is potted out of turn the ball in question is replaced on the table. If the cue ball is potted, it is replaced, and the non-offending player may place it on the table anywhere they wish.
A transformation in which a figure “turns” around a center point or axis.
The transformation that occurs when a figure is turned a certain angle and direction around a point. A rotation is also called a turn.

The pivoting of a bone on its axis (internal-toward the body midline; external-away from the body midline).
the rotatory motion of a celestial body around its own axis. Slingshot Effect a mechanism by which when a spacecraft flies very near a planet it receives an acceleration; thus the spacecraft gains further speed compared to when it left the Earth.

Motion in which the path of every point in a moving object is a circle, or circular arc, centered on a specified axis.
A transformation that maps every point in the plane to its image by rotating the plane around a fixed point.
The act of turning around an axis.
A rotation in the plane through an angle q and about a point is a rigid motion fixing so that if is distinct from then the angle between the lines PQ and PT(Q) is always . A rotation through an angle in space is a rigid motion fixing the points of a line so that it is a rotation through in the plane perpendicular to through some point on

Motion aound an axis passing through the rotating body.
a movement in which the tooth turned along the long axis of the tooth.
An isometry in which all points turn through a constant angle about a fixed point. The fixed point is called the center of rotation, and the amount of turn is called the angle of rotation (Lesson 8.1 ).
In computer graphics, the transformation of a primitive by rotating it about an axis. See also transformation.
