15.5.434 pmat76


[SOFA] Returns the precession matrix from J2000.0 to a specified TT Julian Date jdtt according to the IAU 1976 model. The result has the same dimensions as jdtt except that two dimensions equal to 3 are prefixed. If the result is rbp then v(date) = rbp v(gcrs) where v(gcrs) is a p-vector with respect to the Geocentric Celestial Reference System and v(date) is a p-vector with respect to the mean equatorial triad of the given date.
