CSPICE_DSPHDR computes the Jacobian of the transformation from
rectangular to spherical coordinates.
x [1,n] = size(x); double = class(x)
y [1,n] = size(y); double = class(y)
z [1,n] = size(z); double = class(z)
the rectangular coordinates of the point at which the Jacobian of
the map from rectangular to spherical coordinates is desired.
jacobi = cspice_dsphdr( x, y, z)
jacobi the matrix of partial derivatives of the conversion
between rectangular and spherical coordinates. It
has the form
If [1,1] = size(x) then [3,3] = size(jacobi)
If [1,n] = size(x) then [3,3,n] = size(jacobi)
double = class(jacobi)
| dr/dx dr/dy dr/dz |
| dcolat/dx dcolat/dy dcolat/dz |
| dlon/dx dlon/dy dlon/dz |
evaluated at the input values of x, y, and z.
When performing vector calculations with velocities it is
usually most convenient to work in rectangular coordinates.
However, once the vector manipulations have been performed
it is often desirable to convert the rectangular representations
into spherical coordinates to gain insights about phenomena
in this coordinate frame.
To transform rectangular velocities to derivatives of coordinates
in a spherical system, one uses the Jacobian of the transformation
between the two systems.
Given a state in rectangular coordinates
( x, y, z, dx, dy, dz )
the corresponding spherical coordinate derivatives are given by
the matrix equation:
t | t
(dr, dcolat, dlon) = jacobi| * (dx, dy, dz)
This routine computes the matrix
|(x, y, z)
