comment LyX Layout File for the SIAM book class
Thanks Aradnix. I have had a look a the CTAN. I was not able to find a LyX layout file there. I have to search elsewhere to find the layout file if it exists. Thanks once more.

comment Is there an Elsevier LaTeX2e book class?
Thank you very much Christian. I am a bit surprised that Elsevier do not have a LaTeX book class in the public domain, when they do have a LaTeX article class in the public domain. Thanks for the advice. I'll desist from piling up my questions in future.

comment Why does LyX flag the following maths macro definition as an error?
Thanks for all the responses. It works when I use the package mathrsfs. What is interesting is that the problem only occurs when the formal script font is used in a macro definition. When I use the formal script font in the body of a LyX document the error does not occur, even if I don't use the package mathrsfs explicitly. I therefore thought that the same condition would naturally be extended to the context of the use of the LyX maths macro definition facility. I was dead wrong! Thanks.

I have studied your code and adapted it as shown below. I am able to draw nice pictures with it and I like the results. One more thing: How can one modify so that the wholes structure rotates as a rigid body?

Thanks for the style that you have posted @percusse. It produces the figure nicely. Let me analyze it and see how I can adapt it to my requirements.
