I am reading Papantonopoulou: Algebra Ch 14 Symmetries. I am seeking to fully understand Theorem 14.21 (see attached Papantonopoulou pp 462 -463)
On page 462, Papantonopoulou defines translations, rotations and reflections for R2 and R3 (see attached). Note that the rotations are defined as about the origin and the reflections are about the X-axis or axis.
Then on Page 463 he states Theorem 14.21 as follows:
14.21 Theorem An isometry S of or can be uniquely expressed as where i = 0 or 1
I would like to use Theorem 14.21 to specify S for the isometry of that maps the line y = x to the line y = 1 - 2x? [ ie what is , , in this case?]
Can anyone please help?
