lamellarPC is precision limited

Description
Adapt the Lamellar PC calculation to use less precision limited math.
That means replacing ww = exp(…) with ww-1 = expm1(…), which can be calculated without loss of precision. Similarly, 1 - cos(x) for cos(x) near zero can be replaced with 2*sin^{2}(x).
The alternative is to force lamellarPC to use double or quad precision even if the rest of the calculations are in single precision.
Use compare -longdouble to evaluate a model with quad precision.

Is this ticket still valid now model has changed?

Forcing double precision. Model is still a bit cranky, but can't be helped.
Note: See
TracTickets for help on using
tickets.
probably should be part of the core model conversion process. As I understand it this "works" so maybe only critical and not blocker for the release?
