Radar cross section of cylinder

returns the radar cross section pattern of an elliptical cylinder having a semi-major axis,
`rcspat`

= rcscylinder(`r1`

,`r2`

,`height`

,`c`

,`fc`

)`r1`

, a semi-minor axis, `r2`

, and a height,
`height`

. The radar cross section is a function of signal frequency,
`fc`

, and signal propagation speed,`c`

. The bottom
of the cylinder lies on the *xy*-plane. The height of the cylinder points
along the positive *z*-axis.
