Hi, I'm using the Finite Center of Rotation method described at the end of this thread to estimate the center of rotation and angle between two vectors A, B of corresponding points in the plane. Effectively, it is just a leastsquares method with complex numbers to find the x which best minimizes A  Bx = (ABx)* (ABx) . The bestfit rotation is then simply arg(x)=arctan(imag(x)/real(x)). So far so good. Now I also want a measure of quality in terms of rotation, i.e. as an error of the angle, and I'm not sure how to achieve that from the pseudoinverse of B, the vector of residuals or otherwise. Any idea ?
