smithcir(c,r,maxG,width)
% smithcir.m - add stability and constant gain circles on Smith chart
%
% Usage: smithcir(c,r,maxG,width)
%        smithcir(c,r,maxG)       (equivalent to width=1)
%        smithcir(c,r)            (equivalent to width=1, maxG=r+|c|)
%
% c,r  = vectors of centers and radii of circles
% maxG = display portion of circle with |Gamma| <= maxG, must have same dimension as c and r
%
% notes: a basic Smith chart must be drawn first, e.g., with smith
%        then smithcir can be called to draw a gain or stability circle
%
%        maxG = r+|c| draws entire circle
%
%        center can be displayed by plot(c,'.')
%
%        join c to origin with line([0,real(c)],[0,imag(c)])
