Sign Convention

Dear Rich,
I just made my first attempt with gyre_nad v.3.0; huraai ...
Thanks for solving the former issues with introducing the new feature: CREATE_MIDPOINT.

I have a question for the sake of bookkeeping.
In the literature, the temporal part of oscillation variables is either defined as exp(+i omega t) or exp(- i omega t), which end up with different meaning of the imaginary part of the eigenfrequency. Which one is used in GYRE? What is the meaning of positive and negative W values?
