What Are Optimization Options?

Optimization options are a way of combining a set of name-value arguments. 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.

Options simplify solver syntax—you don’t have to include a lot of name-value arguments in a call to a solver.

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

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