Returns the poles of a normalized lowpass Chebyshev TYPE 1 analog filter function as a COMPLEX column vector.

A Chebyshev TYPE 1 filter has equi-ripple behavior in the passband and monotonically increasing attenuation in the stopband. The requested filter order 'Norder' must be >= 2. The passband peak-to-peak ripple is set via parameter 'Ap' in dB, where Ap > 0.0dB (strictly positive). Due to the nature of Chebyshev functions, even order filters cannot have a gain of unity at 0 Hz as can odd order filters. Even order filters start at Ap dB down at 0 Hz and begin passband ripple characteristics from there. All filters are passive, i.e., they can a gain of 1.0 at most at any given frequency.
