SHReturnTapers will calculate the eigenfunctions (i.e., localization windows) of the spherical-cap concentration problem. Each column of the matrix
tapers contains the spherical harmonic coefficients of a single window and the corresponding concentration factor is given in the array
eigenvalues. Each window has non-zero coefficients for only a single angular order that is specified in
taper_order: all other spherical harmonic coefficients for a given window are identically zero. The columns of
tapers are ordered from best to worst concentrated, and the first and last rows of each column correspond to spherical harmonic degrees 0 and
lmax, respectively. The localization windows are normalized such that they have unit power.
