Draft: Add TaylorF2Plus and TaylorF2Quasi

Geraint Pratten requested to merge waveforms/reviews/lalsuite:tf2plus into master


This merge implements TaylorF2+ and TaylorF2Quasi, both are improved point-particle baselines for the TaylorF2 model. TaylorF2+ extends TaylorF2 by incorporating higher-order PN terms up to 6PN over a range of 10-1500Hz. TaylorF2Quasi implements corrections up to 5.5PN based on Taylor expanding the factorised and resummed EOB energy fluxes and taking the SPA.
