Algebraic vector representation is in a broad sense a description system for the kinematics and kinetics of multirigid-body systems. This description system is extended to include geometric vectors using "coordinate unit vector matrices". Coordinate unit vector matrices are fundamental quantities used to connect geometric vectors and algebraic vectors. They are also used to define coordinate transformation matrices (rotation matrices) . The basis of this new description system is explained here. Practical examples on how to construct the constrained connections in Order-N-Algorithm are given.
