# GeneratedParameters

 GeneratedParametersis an option which specifies how parameters generated to represent the results of various symbolic operations should be named.
• The typical default setting is .
• The setting specifies that successive generated parameters should be named f[1], f[2], ... .
• In typical cases, the f[i] are used to parameterize families of solutions to equations.
• The f[i] usually correspond to free parameters, but are also sometimes used to represent arbitrary functions.
• The f[i] have indices that start at 1 for each invocation of a particular symbolic operation.
