Evaluate a complex function expressed in complex spherical harmonics at a single point.

Usage

value = MakeGridPointC (cilm, lat, lon, [lmax, norm, csphase, dealloc])

Returns

value : complex
Value of the function at (lat, lon).

Parameters

cilm : complex, dimension (2, lmaxin+1, lmaxin+1)
The complex spherical harmonic coefficients of the function. The coefficients C0lm and C1lm refer to the positive and negative angular orders, respectively, with Clm=cilm[0,1,m] and Cl-m=cilm[1,l,m].
lat : float
The latitude of the point in DEGREES.
lon : float
The longitude of the point in DEGREES.
lmax : optional, integer, default = lmaxin
The maximum spherical harmonic degree used in evaluating the function.
norm : optional, integer, default = 1
1 (default) = Geodesy 4-pi normalized harmonics; 2 = Schmidt semi-normalized harmonics; 3 = unnormalized harmonics; 4 = orthonormal harmonics.
csphase : optional, integer, default = 1
1 (default) = do not apply the Condon-Shortley phase factor to the associated Legendre functions; -1 = append the Condon-Shortley phase factor of (-1)^m to the associated Legendre functions.
dealloc : optional, integer, default = 0
0 (default) = Save variables used in the external Legendre function calls. (1) Deallocate this memory at the end of the funcion call.

Description

MakeGridPointC will expand a complex function expressed in complex spherical harmonics at a single point. The input latitude and longitude are in degrees, and the maximum degree used in evaluating the function is the smaller of lmaxin and lmax. The employed spherical harmonic normalization and Condon-Shortley phase convention can be set by the optional arguments norm and csphase; if not set, the default is to use geodesy 4-pi normalized harmonics that exclude the Condon-Shortley phase of (-1)^m.
