Hi Olivier,

when I was looking at this a few weeks ago I realised that in BinothLHA.f there is this line:

 if ((dabs(avgPoleRes(1))+dabs(avgPoleRes(2))).ne.0d0) then
               cpol = .not.((((PoleDiff(1)+PoleDiff(2))/
     $ (dabs(avgPoleRes(1))+dabs(avgPoleRes(2)))) .lt.
     $ tolerance*10d0).or.(mod(ret_code,10).eq.7))

               cpol = .not.((PoleDiff(1)+PoleDiff(2).lt.tolerance*10d0)
     $ .or.(mod(ret_code,10).eq.7))

I believe Collier corresponds to .eq.7 and this is why the test seems to pass, even if the numbers are not agreeing. E.g. I see things like:

        MadFKS: -5.1118724822382218E-008 OLP: 0.0000000000000000
        MadFKS: -5.4796083693610551E-008 OLP: -9.2617064392846240E-008

Maybe someone can confirm why that line was added there. It’s not the source of the zero numbers, but it’s weird that this was set up like that to allow the test to pass.
