   Specifies the multipole population coefficients P(l,m) for
   the atom identified in _atom_rho_multipole_atom_label.  The
   multipoles are defined with respect to the local axes specified
   in the ATOM_LOCAL_AXES category.  The coefficients refer to the
   multipole formalism described by Hansen & Coppens [1978,
   equation (2)] which gives the electron density at position
   vector r with respect to an atomic nucleus as

   rho(r) = Pc*rho_core(r) + Pv*k^3^*rho_valence(kappa*r)
           + sum{kappa'(l)^3^*R(kappa'(l),l,r)}
     Pc     = _atom_rho_multipole_coeff_Pc
     Pv     = _atom_rho_multipole_coeff_Pv
     P(0,0) = _atom_rho_multipole_coeff_P00
     Pc + Pv + P(0,0) = Z (the atomic number) for a neutral atom

     kappa     = _atom_rho_multipole_kappa,
     kappa'(l) = _atom_rho_multipole_kappa_prime[l],

     d(l,m,theta,phi) is the spherical harmonic of order l,m at the
     position (theta, phi) with respect to spherical coordinates
     centred on the atom.

     The summations are performed over the index ranges
     0 <= l <= lmax, -l <= m <= l, respectively, where lmax is
     the highest order of multipole applied.

     The spherical coordinates are related to the local Cartesian
     axes defined in category ATOM_LOCAL_AXES, z is the polar axis
     from which the angle theta is measured, and the angle phi is
     measured from the x axis in the xy plane with the y axis
     having a value of phi = +90 degrees.

     R(kappa'(l),l,r) is defined in the _atom_rho_multipole_radial_*

     rho_core(r) and rho_valence(kappa*r) are the spherical core
     and valence densities, respectively. They are obtained from
     atomic orbital analytic wavefunctions such as those tabulated
     by Clementi & Roetti (1974). They are also the Fourier
     transforms of the X-ray scattering factors given in
     _atom_rho_multipole_scat_core and
