Constructs new atomic variable.

1) The default constructor is trivial: no initialization takes place other than zero initialization of static and thread-local objects. std::atomic_init may be used to complete initialization.
(until C++20)
1) Value-initializes the underlying object (i.e. with T()). The initialization is not atomic. Use of the default constructor is ill-formed if std::is_default_constructible_v<T> is false.
(since C++20)
2) Initializes the underlying object with desired. The initialization is not atomic.
3) Atomic variables are not CopyConstructible.

[edit] Parameters

desired - value to initialize with

[edit] Notes

The default-initialized std::atomic<T> does not contain a T object, and its only valid uses are destruction and initialization by std::atomic_init, see LWG 2334
