Complementary terms, in radians.
1. The series used in this function was derived from Series from IERS Conventions (2003), Chapter 5, Table 5.2C. This same series was also adopted for use in the IAU's Standards of Fundamental Astronomy (SOFA) software (i.e., subroutine eect00.for and function eect00.c).

2. The low-accuracy series used in this function is a simple implementation derived from the first reference, in which terms smaller than 2 microarcseconds have been omitted.

3. This function is based on NOVAS Fortran routine 'eect2000', with the low-accuracy formula taken from NOVAS Fortran routine 'etilt'.
