Converts small Euler angles to an axis-angle representation.

Under the small angle assumption,

$$\sin(x)$$

and

$$\cos(x)$$

can be approximated by their second order Taylor expansions, where

$$\sin(x) \approx x$$

and

$$\cos(x) \approx 1 - \frac{x^2}{2}$$

. In the current implementation, the smallness of the angles is not verified.

Note:

The conversion is performed by first converting to a quaternion representation, and then by converting the quaternion to an axis-angle.

Note:

In the following, A1 to An are optional batch dimensions.

angles A tensor of shape [A1, ..., An, 3], where the last dimension represents the three small Euler angles. [A1, ..., An, 0] is the angle about x in radians [A1, ..., An, 1] is the angle about y in radians and [A1, ..., An, 2] is the angle about z in radians.
name A name for this op that defaults to "axis_angle_from_euler_with_small_angles_approximation".

A tuple of two tensors, respectively of shape [A1, ..., An, 3] and [A1, ..., An, 1], where the first tensor represents the axis, and the second represents the angle. The resulting axis is a normalized vector.
