    What is a Rotated Transpose called?

    Given a MATRIX

    \begin{pmatrix}<br />
{a}&{b}&{c}&{d}\\ <br />
{e}&{f}&{g}&{h}\\ <br />
{i}&{j}&{k}&{l}\\ <br />
{m}&{n}&{o}&{p}<br />
\end{pmatrix}

    The Transpose of a matrix rotates
    the matrix about the DESCENDING diagonal.
    The Transpose:

    \begin{pmatrix}<br />
{a}&{e}&{i}&{m}\\ <br />
{b}&{f}&{j}&{n}\\ <br />
{c}&{g}&{k}&{o}\\ <br />
{d}&{h}&{l}&{p}<br />
\end{pmatrix}

    Is there a name for the operation when
    the matrix is rotated about the ascending diagonal?
    The elements of the matrix are rotated clockwise 180 degrees,
    then the reordered matrix is transposed.

    \begin{pmatrix}<br />
{p}&{l}&{h}&{d}\\ <br />
{o}&{k}&{g}&{c}\\ <br />
{n}&{j}&{f}&{b}\\ <br />
{m}&{i}&{e}&{a}<br />
\end{pmatrix}

    Is there a name for this operation?

    Is there a site that explains (with graphics or images)
    the different operations on matrices?

    I have learnt the 1st transpose, but not the 2nd.
    What is the uses of the 2nd transpose?

    I'm not sure that it has a use.
    I am trying to understand combinations/permutations, reflections, rotations, etc. of matrices, and was just wondering if the different
    transformations have commonly accepted names.
