One can consider this 4-D rotational transformation as the result of a bi-quaternion operation [14], or equivalently, a bi-spinor or Ivanenko-Landau-Kahler spinor or Dirac-Kahler spinor operation.
The rotational behavior of Einsteinian space is discussed in the context of rotational transformation between the Schwarzschild metric and the Kerr metric obtained for weak field within the limit of (r[omega]) < c.
