Convert complex spherical harmonics to real form.


rcilm = SHctor (ccilm, [lmax, convention, switchcs])


rcilm : float, dimension (2, lmax+1, lamx+1)
The output real spherical harmonic coefficients. rcilm[0,:,:] and rcilm[1,:,:] correspond to the cosine and sine terms, respectively.


ccilm : float, dimension (2, lmaxin+1, lmaxin+1)
The input complex spherical harmonic coefficients. ccilm[0,:,:] and ccilm[1,:,:] correspond to the real and complex part of the coefficients, respectively. Only the positive angular orders are input; the negative orders are assumed to satisfy the relation C_{l-m}=(-1)^m C_{lm}^*.
lmax : optional, integer, default = lmaxin
The maximum degree of the output coefficients.
convention : optional, integer, default = 1
If 1 (default), the input and output coefficients will have the same normalization. If 2, orthonormalized coefficients will be converted to real geodesy 4-pi form.
swtichcs : optional, integer, default = 0
If 0 (default), the input and output coefficients will possess the same Condon-Shortley phase convention. If 1, the input coefficients will first be multiplied by (-1)^m.


SHctor will convert complex spherical harmonics of a real function to real form. The normalization of the input and output coefficients are by default the same, but if the optional argument convention is set to 2, this routine will convert from geodesy 4-pi normalized coefficients to orthonormalized coefficients. The Condon-Shortley phase convention between the input an output coefficients can be modified by the optional argument switchcs.
