PYTHIA8: Proposed updates to Tau Table

Warning: Purely unvalidated project !! 
  • All the values seem to have changed a little.
  • Follwing table, carries a comparison of the old PYTHIA numbers with what I think to be corresponding numbers in PDG.
  • The column "SNo", is the serial number of mode in PYTHIA table, while "SNo(PDG)" is the corresponding number at PDG page.
  • My feelings about the various modes are listed in comments section.
