`gst06a(`

`jdut`, `jdtt`)

[SOFA] Returns Greenwich apparent sidereal time in radians consistent
with IAU 2000 and 2006 resolutions.

is the Julian
Date (UT1). `jdut`

is the Julian Date (TT) of the same
instant. `jdtt`

is needed to predict the Earth rotation,
and TT to predict the effects of precession. If `jdut`

is
set equal to `jdtt`

then errors of order 100
microarcseconds result. `jdut`

and `jdut`

must
have the same dimensions. The result has those same dimensions as
well.
