My understanding of a rotation of a vector can be done by using a 2D rotation matrix as shown below, $R(\theta )=\begin{bmatrix}\cos \theta &\sin \theta \\\sin \theta &\cos \theta \\\end{bmatrix}$. This rotates column vectors by means of the following matrix multiplication, $\begin{bmatrix}x'\\y'\end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix}\cos \theta &\sin \theta \\\sin \theta &\cos \theta \\\end{bmatrix}\begin{bmatrix}x\\y \end{bmatrix}$ For example, if you rotate the vector x=$\begin{bmatrix}1\\1 \end{bmatrix}$ by 45 degrees (clockwise), then the new vector is $\begin{bmatrix} \sqrt2 \\ 0 \end{bmatrix}$. **Other Method:** If I have only initial and final coordinates of the vectors [![enter image description here][1]][1] The initial vector is, V = $\begin{bmatrix}1\\1 \end{bmatrix}$ and the final vector is, v = V+d = $\begin{bmatrix} \sqrt2 \\ 0 \end{bmatrix}$. The displacement between these vectors is d = $\begin{bmatrix} \sqrt21 \\ 1 \end{bmatrix}$. Can I derive the final vector v with respect to displacement $\frac{\partial{v}}{\partial{d}}$ to get the rotation vector? [but returns a identity matrix] If so, does $\frac{\partial{v}}{\partial{d}} * d $ can be used to crosscheck? [1]: https://i.stack.imgur.com/hYDJn.png

How would $\frac{\partial v}{\partial d}$ be defined?
