19// Class AliPosition
20// Handling of positions in various reference frames.
21//
22// This class is meant to serve as a base class for ALICE objects
23// that have a unique position in 3-dimensional space.
24//
25// Note :
26// ------
27// Positions (r), errors (e) and reference frames (f) are specified via
28//
29// SetPosition(Float_t* r,TString f)
30// SetPositionErrors(Float_t* e,TString f)
31//
32// under the following conventions :
33//
34// f="car" ==> r in Cartesian coordinates (x,y,z)
35// f="sph" ==> r in Spherical coordinates (r,theta,phi)
36// f="cyl" ==> r in Cylindrical coordinates (rho,phi,z)
37//
38// All angles are in radians.
39//
40// Example :
41// ---------
42//
43// AliPosition q;
44// Float_t pos[3]={-1,25,7};
45// Float_t err[3]={0.08,1.85,0.5};
46// q.SetPosition(pos,"car");
47// q.SetPositionErrors(pos,"car");
48// Float_t loc[3],dloc[3];
49// q.GetPosition(loc,"sph");
50// q.GetPositionErrors(dloc,"sph");
51//
