A Flashbased Demonstration of Quaternions and Spherical Linear Interpolation 
Click to access this paper:

A comparison of rotational methods using matrices, Euler angles, and quaternions is given. The quaternion based technique Slerp  spherical linear interpolation  which allows for smooth rotations between two coordinate frames is also illustrated. Flash programs illustrate the concepts.
