Class Description

 Helix is, hmmm, well, a helix.  It has 3 different constructors.

 Comments/suggestions/etc on this class should be sent to the author:
    (Ping Yeh)

   If a particle with charge q passes through a point (x,y,z)
   with momentum (px,py,pz) with magnetic field B along an axis (nx,ny,nz),
   this helix can be constrcuted like

      THelix p(x0,y0,z0, px,py,pz, q*B, nx,ny,nz);

     (nx,ny,nz) defaults to (0,0,1).

   A helix in its own frame can be defined with initial position
   (x0,y0,z0) and "velocity" (vx0,vy0,vz0), both 3-vectors, and
   an angular frequency w.  The parametric equation of the helix is

    x = x0 - vt / w * sin(-w * t + phi0)
    y = y0 + vt / w * cos(-w * t + phi0)
    z = z0 + vz * t

   The 'normal constructor' has 6 parameters,

                 THelix pl1(xyz0, v0, w, range, rtype, axis);

             xyz0  : array of initial position
             v0    : array of initial velocity
             w     : angular frequency
             range : helix range
             rtype : kHelixZ specifies allowed drawing range in helix Z direction, i.e., along B field.
                     kLabZ specifies drawing range in lab frame.
                     kHelixX, kHelixY, kLabX, kLabY, kUnchanged ... etc can also be specified
             axis  : helix axis

 A Third constructor uses several default values:

   c1 = new TCanvas("c1");
   TView *view = new TView(1);
   THelix *helix = new THelix(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.3, 10.0);

 will initializes a helix with its axis in Z direction (rtype=kHelixZ).
 range[0] = 0 and range[1] = 1
void SetHelix(Double_t *p, Double_t *v, Double_t w, Double_t *range, EHelixRangeType rType, Double_t *axis )
 Set all helix parameters.
 Helix default constructor.
THelix(Double_t x, Double_t y, Double_t z, Double_t vx, Double_t vy, Double_t vz, Double_t w)
 Helix normal constructor.
THelix(Double_t * p, Double_t * v, Double_t w, Double_t * range, EHelixRangeType rType, Double_t * axis)
 Helix normal constructor.
THelix(const THelix &h)
 Helix copy constructor.
THelix& operator=(const THelix& hx)
assignement operator
 Helix destructor.
void Copy(TObject &obj)
 Copy this helix to obj.
void Draw(Option_t *option)
 Draw this helix with its current attributes.
void Print(Option_t *option)
 Dump this helix with its attributes.
void SavePrimitive(ostream &out, Option_t * /*= ""*/)
 Save primitive as a C++ statement(s) on output stream out.
void SetAxis(Double_t * axis)
 Set a new axis for the helix.  This will make a new rotation matrix.
void SetAxis(Double_t x, Double_t y, Double_t z)
 Set axis.
void SetRange(Double_t * range, EHelixRangeType rType)
 Set a new range for the helix.  This will remake the polyline.
void SetRange(Double_t r1, Double_t r2, EHelixRangeType rType)
 Set range.
void SetRotMatrix()
 Set the rotational matrix according to the helix axis.
Double_t FindClosestPhase(Double_t phi0, Double_t cosine)
 Finds the closest phase to phi0 that gives cos(phase) = cosine
void Streamer(TBuffer &R__b)
 Stream an object of class THelix.
Option_t * GetOption()
{return fOption.Data();}
void SetOption(Option_t *option="")
{fOption = option;}
