What Are Options?

Options are a way of combining a set of name-value pairs. They are useful because they allow you to:

  • Tune or modify the optimization process.

  • Select extra features, such as output functions and plot functions.

  • Save and reuse settings.

They simplify solver syntax—you don't have to include a lot of name-value pairs in a call to a solver.

To see how to set and change options, see Set and Change Options.

For an overview of all options, including which solvers use each option, see Optimization Options Reference.
