        public HaloOrbit​(CR3BPSystem syst,
                         PVCoordinates pv,
                         double orbitalPeriod)
        Simple Constructor.

        This constructor can be used if the user wants to use a first guess from any other sources or if he has the initial conditions of a well defined Halo Orbit. In that case, it is assumed that the user knows the characteristics of the Halo Orbit leading to this first guess/point. Also, the orbital period of this Halo Orbit has to be specified for further computation.

        syst - CR3BP System considered
        pv - PVCoordinates of the initial point or of the first guess
        orbitalPeriod - Normalized orbital period linked to the given Halo Orbit first guess

                         LibrationOrbitFamily type)
        Simple Constructor.

        Standard constructor, the first guess will be computed with both start time and phase equal to zero.
