lmin(ZL,Z0,type)
% lmin.m - find locations of voltage minima and maxima
%
% Usage: [lm,Zm] = lmin(ZL,Z0,type)
%        [lm,Zm] = lmin(ZL,Z0)      (equivalent to type='min')
%
% ZL   = load impedance
% Z0   = line impedance
% type = 'min', 'max' (default 'min') 
%
% lm = location in wavelengths
% Zm = real-valued wave impedance at lm
%
% notes: calculate G = z2g(ZL,Z0), S = swr(G), th = angle(G), then
%
%                  lmin = (th + pi)/4/pi, Zmin = Z0/S, 
%
%                  lmax = th/4/pi (or, (th+2*pi)/4/pi, if th<0), Zmax = S*Z0
