File Information

MATLAB script and support functions that can be used to compute mean or apparent Greenwich sidereal time using MATLAB versions of the NOVAS software suite. Implements four possible computation modes (CIO and equinox-based; low and high accuracy). The script is "hard-wired" with an example from NOVAS.
