Dear Baowei,
     in the GIPAW method the core and AE wavefunctions are
not calculated explicitly, that is, they are not evaluated
or stored in any real/reciprocal space grid.
They are represented by non-local projectors terms acting
on wavefunctions. Therefore, you can't find them in the
However, if you are interested in the AE density in some
points of space, look at the hyperfine routine. There I
reconstruct the AE density at the nuclei positions.
