Giwrgos-

I don't know why couldn't find this with google -- searching for
"protein torsion angles cross product" (unquoted) turns up two good
documents:

http://www.math.fsu.edu/~quine/IntroMathBio_05/torsion_pdb/torsion_pdb.pdf
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dihedral_angle

The first does a good job of explaining the vector math at a fairly
elementary level.
