{

  ## alpha is the scalar ONE-SIDED test size, or two-sided size/2
  ## beta is a scalar or vector of powers
  ## pit is the hypothesized treatment probability of success
  ## pic is the hypothesized control probability of success
  ## returns required TOTAL sample size, using arcsin transformation
  ## rho is the proportion of the sample devoted to treated group (0 <rho < 1)
