orbfour - show geometric fourier coefficients of an orbit
**orbfour
in=**orbit [parameter=value]

**orbfour** calculates the fourier coefficients
of an orbit by assuming you have sampled the orbit evenly. The first few
dominant coefficients are then immediately computed by a straight sum.
The
current implementation only shows the even cosine coefficients in the XY-plane.

The following parameters are recognized in any order if the
keyword is also given:
**in=***in-file*
- input file, in
*orbit(5NEMO)*
format [no
default]
**maxorder=***n*
- Maximum order of the fourier expansion used. [default:
**10**]

orbdim(1NEMO)
, orbit(5NEMO)
The algorithm is based on a
least squares fit, but assuming that sampling of the orbit has been done
properly only diagonal terms in the matrix are used, and hence no matrix
inversion is needed.
