double epsilon = 1e-20

The parameter ε for the numerical representation of a zero molar amount.

The molar amount of the i-th species is considered zero if n[i] < ε*min(b), where b is the vector of element molar amounts.

bool warmstart = true

The boolean flag that indicates if warm-start strategy should be used when possible.

Setting this flag to true will cause equilibrium calculations to use the currect chemical state as an initial guess to the equilibrium calculation. If the current chemical state is detected to be uninitiallized (e.g., all species with zero molar amounts), then cold-start is inevitably used. In this case, a first estimate of a initial guess will be done using a simplex algorithm, which in most cases generates a chemical state that works well as initial guess for all equilibrium algorithms.
