The wf is written als psi(r)_k = Sum(K) c_K exp(iKr)
So obviously the 3 numbers are the K-vectors (full reciprocal space
lattice vectors) and the number is the corresponding c_K coefficient.
This c_K is here just a real number, sumetimes it could be a complex number.
and of course the c_K is different for each eigenvalue (1. 2.... energy)
