3.5.4 Rotation Curves Fitting Functions

Very similar to the Nonlinear Least Squares Fitting Functions are the Rotation Curves Fitting Functions, except they are peculiar to the 1- and 2-dimensional rotation curves one find in galaxies as the result of a projected circular streaming model. The program rotcurshape is the only program that uses these functions, the manual page has a lot more details.
