TS.Contours.Eq.Pole is the imaginary energy at which the line contour crosses the chemical potential of the different contours. The default value is good for >90% of the cases I would think, and probably good for all cases.

The TS.Contour.* block is somewhat difficult to explain. I would suggest you to closely read the manual if you have a desire to master these things. But generally you shouldn't need to change any of the values since the defaults are pretty good!

Thanks Nick Papior, that solved my question.
