Documented in alloc.def3

#’ Allocate sample size across regions by Definition 3 using asymptotic
#' distributions derived.
#‘ @description This function uses grid research to achieve optimal sample
#' size allocation across regions by maximizing conditional assurance probability by
#' Definition 3 when regional treatment effects are sightly different.
#' @param r0 True overall log hazard ratio
#' @param alpha The risk of rejecting the null hypothesis H0:r0>=0
#' when it is really true
#' @param beta The risk of failing to reject the null
#' hypothesis H0:r0>=0 when it is really false
#' @param s Number of regions participating in the MRCT
#' @param u A vector presents ratios of true regional log
#' hazard ratios to true overall log hazard ratio r=u*r0
#' @param eps Significance level of not rejecting H0 in Definition 3
#' @param pai The preserved proportion of overall treatment effect
#' @param grid Grid interval of the grid research
#' @return A list
#' @export
#' @examples
