Analyzes fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) data using the Hankel transform method.

[dy,y_fit]=fkn_dbl_exp_fit(p,t,Fr,k)
% fkn_dbl_exp_fit - makes a double-exponential curve fit of F(k,t)/F(k,0)
%   [dy,y_fit]=fkn_dbl_exp_fit(p,t,Fr,k) where:
%
%   dy = the error in the fit
%   y_fit = the fitted values of F(k,t)/F(k,0)
%
%   p(1) = gamma2 (the fraction of component 2)
%   p(2) = D1 (the diffusion coefficient of component 1)
%   p(3) = D2 (the diffusion coefficient of component 2)
%   p(4) = gamma0 (the fraction of immobile molecules)
%   p(5:end) = amplitudes for each value of k (correcting for errors in
%       F(k,0))
%   t = the times for each frame
%   Fr = F(k,t)/F(k,0) (where F(k,t) is the Hankel transform of the
%       experimental data)
%   k = spatial frequencies
