Shami Tsai has successfully benchmarked the analytical chemistry formula derived in Heng, Lyons & Tsai (2016) and Heng & Lyons (2016) against the TEA code, which computes equilibrium chemistry via Gibbs free energy minimization. This has major implications for calculations of atmospheric retrieval, because of the tremendous speed-up associated with using the analytical formula.
