Function calculates P-wave, S-wave, SH-wave and SV-wave radiation pattern using shear-tensile source model [cf. references 1-3 for details]. All input angles (strike, dip, rake of the fault, tensile angle gamma, takeoff angle TKO and azimuth from the source to the observation point AZM) should be provided in degrees. The takeoff angle is measure from bottom. The azimuth to the observation point is measured from north to east. The function returns matrices of the same size as input TKO and AZM matrices which should be of the same size and denote a set of observation points specified by takeoff angles and azimuth.
