Since PAOs are basis functions for pseudopotentials, the variation near the origin
is not so large compared to all electron cases. So, we do not need to have a very
fine grid near the origin.

The complexity comes from the FFT in Eqs. (8), (19), and (20), resulting in N log N.

If the Siegman-Talman method is used, we can keep the logarithmic grid.
The case is shown in Fig. 7. From the comparison, we found that regular mesh is
more efficient than the logarithmic grid for PAOs.
