# Solution Strategy Commands

The solution strategy of a problem is specified by the commands in this chapter.

Either use the AUTO_SOLUTION_STRATEGY command, which issues all the other commands in this chapter, or use those commands individually. If the AUTO_SOLUTION_STRATEGY command is not used, then the TIME_SEQUENCE and STAGGER commands must be explicitly given in a trace input file. All others are optional; if they are not given, their default values are used.
