Frame bias and precession, IAU 2000.

   date1,date2  double         TT as a 2-part Julian Date (Note 1)

   rb           double[3][3]   frame bias matrix (Note 2)
   rp           double[3][3]   precession matrix (Note 3)
   rbp          double[3][3]   bias-precession matrix (Note 4)


1) The TT date date1+date2 is a Julian Date, apportioned in any
   convenient way between the two arguments.  For example,
   JD(TT)=2450123.7 could be expressed in any of these ways,
   among others:

           date1         date2

       2450123.7           0.0       (JD method)
       2451545.0       -1421.3       (J2000 method)
       2400000.5       50123.2       (MJD method)
       2450123.5           0.2       (date & time method)

   The JD method is the most natural and convenient to use in
   cases where the loss of several decimal digits of resolution
   is acceptable.  The J2000 method is best matched to the way
   the argument is handled internally and will deliver the
   optimum resolution.  The MJD method and the date & time methods
   are both good compromises between resolution and convenience.

2) The matrix rb transforms vectors from GCRS to mean J2000.0 by
   applying frame bias.

3) The matrix rp transforms vectors from J2000.0 mean equator and
   equinox to mean equator and equinox of date by applying

4) The matrix rbp transforms vectors from GCRS to mean equator and
   equinox of date by applying frame bias then precession.  It is
   the product rp x rb.

5) It is permissible to re-use the same array in the returned
   arguments.  The arrays are filled in the order given.
