% twoquditop   Operator acting on two qudits of a qudit register
%   twoquditop(op,k1,k2,n) defines an n-qudit quantum operator
%   which corresponds to operator op acting on the k1th and k2th qudits.
%   Qudit position is interpreted as with reorder.
%   The dimension of the qudit is deduced from the size of op.
%   If n is omitted, then its value is taken to be the value of global
%   variable N. If op is sparse, twoquditop() will also
%   produce a sparse matrix.
