This assumes that the initial guess supplied to the routine is far from the correct one.
Substantial work plus transient timestepping is to be expected to find a solution.

const int SFLUX_RESIDUAL = 2 
Need to solve the surface problem in order to calculate the surface fluxes of gasphase species.
(Can expect a moderate change in the solution vector; try to solve the system by direct methods with no damping first, then try timestepping if the first method fails). A "time_scale" supplied here is used in the algorithm to determine when to shut off timestepping.

const int SFLUX_JACOBIAN = 3 
Calculation of the surface problem is due to the need for a numerical jacobian for the gasproblem.
The solution is expected to be very close to the initial guess, and accuracy is needed because solution variables have been perturbed from nominal values to create Jacobian entries.

const int SFLUX_TRANSIENT = 4 
The transient calculation is performed here for an amount of time specified by "time_scale".
It is not guaranteed to be timeaccurate  just stable and fairly fast. The solution after del_t time is returned, whether it's converged to a steady state or not. This is a poor man's time stepping algorithm.
