# Use Automatic Expansion

 Name: USE_AUTOMATIC_EXPANSION  Type: bool Default Value: true Available Options: true, false

This enables or disables the use of expansion for mathematical expressions in your problem. If enabled, an alternative expanded version of your problem would be created where functions like $$(x-2)^2$$ will be replaced by $$x^2-4x+4$$. The Engine will then select the most promising model to solve between the original (unexpanded) and alternative (expanded) version.
