Polar shapelet coefficients are complex. They store twice as much information as there is in an wholly real image. shapelets_polar_expand.pro compresses the redundant information, creating a floating point array with as many entries as there were in the original complex array. This routine reverses the process, recovering the full set of complex numbers.

; Apr 02 - RM Removed a degeneracy in phase coefficients ; Feb 02 - Written by Richard Massey ; ; Manufactures and reinserts the degenerate complex parts of polar shapelet ; coefficients so they can be transformed back into cartesian shapelets. ; See shapelets_polar_reduce.pro for extraction technique.
