IauOrientationParameters Class

A structure containing the orientation data computed at a particular time. The data represent the direction of the pole of rotation and the rotation about that pole.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)
Indicates whether another object is exactly equal to this instance.
(Overrides ObjectEquals(Object).)
Public methodEquals(IauOrientationParameters)
Indicates whether another instance of this type is exactly equal to this instance.
Public methodGetHashCode
Returns a hash code for this instance, which is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.
(Overrides ObjectGetHashCode.)

Remarks
These values correspond to what is released by the IAU/IAG Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements, with two notable exceptions: the values are in radians as opposed to degrees, and the analytical models are computed in terrestrial time as opposed to barycentric dynamical time.
