ML_EPS_LOW = [real]
Default: ML_EPS_LOW = 1E-10 

Description: Threshold for the CUR algorithm used in the sparsification of local reference configurations within the machine learning force fields.

This value sets the threshold for the eigenvalues that contribute to the leverage scoring used in the CUR algorithm for the rank compression ("sparsification") of the local configurations (for details see appendix E of reference [1]). Small eigenvalues and those columns (local configurations) that are strongly connected with these small eigenvalues are removed by the sparsification routines. The default value is fairly well balanced. However, if extensive training is performed, we recommend to reduce the threshold to 1E-12. Unnecessary local environments can be removed in a post processing step (a single additional learning step with ML_ISTART=1 using new parameters), after the on the fly learning has been finished.

On the theory of the sparsification of local reference configurations see here.
