`rotateA`

Takes as input "parA," the 6 values of the general quadratic Ax^2 + Bxy + Cy^2 +Dx + Ey +F = 0 , and applies a rotation angle to the coefficient set.
`derotateA`

calculates the rotation angle required to change the conic section defined by 'parA' into one that is orthogonal to the cartesian axes.
`xyrot`

is a simple function to rotate the coordinate system by theta.

1 2 3 |

`parA` |
the 6 values of the general quadratic Ax^2 + Bxy + Cy^2 +Dx + Ey +F = 0 |

`theta` |
the angle, in radians, to rotate the conic section. |

`ACmin` |
A tolerance parameter for deciding that the product of parameters A and C is actually zero (in which case the type of conic section is more likely a parabola or a degenerate case) |

`x` |
Either a vector of x-coordinates or a Nx2 array of x and y coordinates, in which case the y-input is ignored |

`y` |
A vector of y-coordinates. |

`derotateA`

uses the following standard formula to calculate the angle.
Derotate means to remove the xy term, i.e. force B = 0 . Some algebra shows that cot(2theta) = (A-C)/B and thus tan(2theta) = B/(A-C)

For `xyrot`

, the internal `xy.coords`

is used. If you enter only a vector for x and nothing for y, this will feed the new vectors 1:N for x and x-input for y to the rotator, which is probably not useful.

For `derotateA`

,

`parA` |
the new 6-parameter set defining the derotated conic. |

`theta` |
the derived angle by which the parameter set was rotated |

For `rotateA`

`parA` |
the new 6-parameter set defining the rotated conic. |

`theta` |
the angle by which the parameter set was rotated |

For `xyrot`

a Nx2 array of the x,y coordinates of the rotated data set.
