Bunch Form Factor

Bunches with non-zero length have power spectral densities that decay with frequency. This will decrease the effect of the impedances, which is a good thing. The program can read in a file of rms bunch lengths as a function of current for determining the form factors for each bunch in the growth rate calculations. It is assumed that the longitudinal distribution of the bunches is gaussian.
