% Usage: Z1 = zprop(Z2,Z0,bl)         
%
% Z2 = wave impedance at point z2
% Z0 = line impedance
% bl = phase length in radians = beta*l = 2*pi*l/lambda
%
% Z1 = wave impedance at point z1
%
% notes: for a lossy line bl can also be complex, i.e., bl-j*al
%        
%        if Z2=inf, it returns Z1=-j*Z0*cot(bl)
