Earth rotation angle (IAU 2000 model).

   dj1,dj2   double    UT1 as a 2-part Julian Date (see note)

Returned (function value):
             double    Earth rotation angle (radians), range 0-2pi


1) The UT1 date dj1+dj2 is a Julian Date, apportioned in any
   convenient way between the arguments dj1 and dj2.  For example,
   JD(UT1)=2450123.7 could be expressed in any of these ways,
   among others:

           dj1            dj2

       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 and MJD methods are good compromises
   between resolution and convenience.  The date & time method is
   best matched to the algorithm used:  maximum precision is
   delivered when the dj1 argument is for 0hrs UT1 on the day in
   question and the dj2 argument lies in the range 0 to 1, or vice

2) The algorithm is adapted from Expression 22 of Capitaine et al.
   2000.  The time argument has been expressed in days directly,
   and, to retain precision, integer contributions have been
   eliminated.  The same formulation is given in IERS Conventions
   (2003), Chap. 5, Eq. 14.
