SUBROUTINE sla_NUT (DATE, RMATN)
*+
* - - - -
* N U T
* - - - -
*
* Form the matrix of nutation for a given date - Shirai & Fukushima
* 2001 theory (double precision)
*
* Reference:
* Shirai, T. & Fukushima, T., Astron.J. 121, 3270-3283 (2001).
*
* Given:
* DATE d TDB (loosely ET) as Modified Julian Date
* (=JD-2400000.5)
* Returned:
* RMATN d(3,3) nutation matrix
*
* Notes:
*
* 1 The matrix is in the sense v(true) = rmatn * v(mean) .
* where v(true) is the star vector relative to the true equator and
* equinox of date and v(mean) is the star vector relative to the
* mean equator and equinox of date.
*
* 2 The matrix represents forced nutation (but not free core
* nutation) plus corrections to the IAU~1976 precession model.
*
* 3 Earth attitude predictions made by combining the present nutation
* matrix with IAU~1976 precession are accurate to 1~mas (with
* respect to the ICRS) for a few decades around 2000.
*
* 4 The distinction between the required TDB and TT is always
* negligible. Moreover, for all but the most critical applications
* UTC is adequate.
*
* Called: sla_NUTC, sla_DEULER
